Via Councillor Shad Qadri:
“I have received notification that Nautical Lands has been granted a tree permit allowing them to remove trees on the site of 5731 Hazeldean. This is in preparation for the construction of a seniors residence and extended care facility.
Work is anticipated to begin on Monday, February 13th.
The included diagram shows the impacted area and it also shows the area that will be improved through selective cutting of poor trees, protection and improvement of Butternut habitat, and tree planting. The developer has contracted with a professional forester to develop a prescription for the site. This prescription will be reviewed and approved by the Planning Forester. Tree cutting within this improvement area will not take place at this time.
Butternut trees are growing on site but a permit for their removal has been obtained from OMNRF.”
