Policy on trees
Adopted by city council on June 20, 2005, the Tree Policy
seeks to equip Montréal and its boroughs with a collective vision and effective
management tools for interventions related to trees.
In order to allow each and every citizen to contribute to the preservation
and development of our arboreal heritage, the Tree Policy proposes a series of
activities including the creation of an inventory and an arboreal plan, as well
as the establishment of maintenance programs for public trees.
In addition to regulating felling and coordinating interventions on public
land, the Tree Policy also targets trees located on private property. The new
regulations protect trees, and they involve necessary adaptations and
modifications to the borough’s previous laws of planning concerning felling.
