What if there is a protected tree located on my lot where I plan to build my house?

With a Tree Removal Permit, protected trees may be removed within the footprint of the residential structures, including garage, carport, driveway and swimming pool.

When a heritage tree is present on the lot, this exemption is limited to the footprint of the principal building, not accessory structures, unless protection of the heritage tree denies or precludes reasonable use of the property.

Tree replacement must be provided for all protected trees removed from your lot.
