Tree management course for community members

We’re sharing this note from our friends at the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association.

Kanata, Stittsville and surrounding area Community Associations,

The KBCA has arranged for a course on Tree Inventory as core information  for our community members to manage trees on their own property and to help manage the forest canopy for the neighborhood.

 We are opening up the course to other communities. The course is $20 and runs on June 16/17/18, starting on Friday evening, plus the Saturday and Sunday.

Tree cutting at 5731 Hazeldean Road

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.”
