The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is assessing the need for a Tree By-law. Such a by-law would regulate the protection and removal of trees on private property within the Town’s urban areas.

We understand that through creating any such by-law, there is a need to balance preservation and protection of trees and the greater good of the community with the need to respect the rights and responsibilities of individual property owners. As such, we are undertaking public consultation so that we can hear what our residents think on this topic, including whether or not they are in favour of such a by-law and to hear their thoughts on how any such potential by-law would be created.

Should the Town proceed with a Private Tree By-Law, it would only apply to our urban areas. Please see the map below that depicts where a potential by-law would apply. Niagara Region’s Tree and Forest Conservation By-Law (By-Law No. 30-2008) would continue to apply to the regulation of woodlots in the Town.
