The City is looking for input on the review and update of our Private Tree Protection By-law, a tool used to protect and enhance Guelph’s tree canopy cover.
The current by-law regulates trees of at least 10 centimetres in diameter (about the size of a grapefruit) on privately owned lots greater than 0.2 hectares (0.5 acres) (about the size of half a football field). Guelph’s by-law has been in place since 1986 and was last updated in 2010.
Between March 6 and April 14, we want to know:
- If you’ve heard about the Private Tree Protection By-law before?
- What you think about the current by-law?
- How you think the by-law can be improved?
How you can participate
We need to hear from property owners, developers, tree experts and members of the community to make the Private Tree Protection By-law the right fit for Guelph.
Complete the online survey by April 14 or to learn about other ways to engage in person and online, visit haveyoursay.guelph.ca/tree-bylaw.
