Blackie Tree Removal Program
April 9-30, 2018
Concerns from numerous residents regarding trees in the hamlet of Blackie have prompted an assessment of tree health in the community. Tree assessments were conducted by three ISA certified arborists who have identified certain trees for removal.
The trees identified for this program are a public safety concern creating hazards by overhanging private residences along with a number of trees that are at the end of their lifecycle due to disease and improper historical pruning practices.
Please obey all signage and remove all vehicles from the street when no parking signs are in place so that tree removals may take place safely.
At this time there are no plans for a tree replacement program.
Thank you for your cooperation.
