Tree Preservation By-law Update

The Town of The Blue Mountains is considering amendments to the current Municipal Tree Preservation By-law 2010-68. The intent of the changes is to extend the scope of the existing By-law to include trees on larger privately owned parcels of land located outside of residential plans of subdivision which do not currently meet the threshold for protection under the current Town or County By-law requirements.
