Permit for tree removal. Beaconsfield City
Although the policy refers to publicly owned trees, the City of Beaconsfield's Tree Policy opens with the statement that the strong presence of trees is an important feature of the City.
The document also emphasizes the preciousness of these large plants, given their many benefits. However, all citizens who own such specimens are equally gratified by their own large plants.
It is therefore understandable that tree cutting, among other arboricultural techniques, is subject to restrictions in the City of Beaconsfield, as it is in all municipalities.
In order to cut down a tree in Beaconsfield, you must obtain a certificate of authorization. You will find a good summary of this in the following pamphlet on trees and hedges. We have also prepared this page as an introduction to the subject, for information purposes only, in order to give you an overview of the issue.
The zoning by-law and the permit and certificate by-law, which can be downloaded from the City of Beaconsfield website, as well as any other legal provisions that may apply to your situation, are important to consult. However, it is recommended that you refer to their official versions and the interpretations of the authorities having jurisdiction.
