Protecting Trees on Private Property

The consultation period for the Draft Private Tree By-law has closed. Please check this page regularly, or subscribe to this project for more updates.

Trees are a key part of our community, as they provide many benefits to residents and visitors alike. It is important for us to maintain and increase our urban tree canopy as King continues to grow. Help us increase our tree canopy by sharing your thoughts and opinions about healthy private trees, and how we can best protect them.

Please keep in mind that the proposed Draft Private Tree By-law only applies to healthy private trees located within the three Village Communities of King City, Nobleton, and Schomberg. You can also review the report for more information.

We want to hear from you!

We invite you to take part in this discussion about the value of trees on private property, and what they contribute to King as a whole.

Private Tree By-law Consultation Survey

King recently shared a Draft Private Tree By-law at Committee of the Whole on June 10th, 2019, with the intent to receive feedback on the proposed by-law. This Draft By-law currently would only apply to the three Village Communities of King City, Nobleton, and Schomberg. For more information, you can read the Clerks Department report

Now we are looking to hear from you!

We are considering making revisions to the Draft Private Tree By-law and need your help. Public consultation is a key step to engage our community on this important topic. By completing this survey, you will help to inform  Council of the community's view of tree protection and desire for a Private Tree By-law in King. It will also help inform any future decisions of a draft by-law, with respect to its provisions, as well as the administration, enforcement, and education elements.   

The results of this survey will be made available when staff report back to members of Council on the findings. Subject to the general consensus of the community, Staff will work to tailor the Draft By-law based on the comments and feedback received through consultations.   

CLOSED: This survey has concluded. More information will be available soon. Please check back regularly or follow this project for updates.
