Annual Tree Maintenance Begins in Holiday Park and Dundonald Neighbourhoods

For immediate release: January 3, 2018 - 3:30pm

Starting Thursday, January 4, 2018, crews will begin pruning trees on civic property in the Holiday Park and Dundonald neighbourhoods as part of the City’s overall boulevard tree maintenance program.  Crews will also be pruning trees under high voltage power lines in various locations throughout the city starting later in the month.

The boulevard tree maintenance program follows a regular pruning cycle to help preserve the health and appearance of the City’s boulevard and park tree inventory.  Maintenance crews will remove any broken, dead, weak, and diseased branches, as well as remove any tree parts that are obstructing pedestrian or vehicle traffic and ensure appropriate clearances for buildings, signs, street lights, and utility wires in order to keep sidewalks and roads free of hazards.  Tree maintenance operations will continue until March 31, 2018.

Tree maintenance often requires road restrictions.  The City reminds pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers to ensure that safety is a priority by respecting the work zone appropriately and obeying all road restrictions and signage.
