The District of Lakeland has marked trees on the edges of roadways to be removed this fall. The trees are being removed for a variety of reasons, most commonly because they are diseased, they are cracked due to windstorm stress, they are bug-infested, or they are already dead. Tree removal will allow for easier snow clearing in winter and prevent treefall risks.
Wherever possible when the wood is in good condition for firewood, Public Works leaves it for pickup after removing branches. If there is insufficient space, the wood is taken to the transfer station. Wood is taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you note a tree on municipal reserve that is diseased or dead, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details, or phone 982-2010. If you have trees on your property that need to be removed, please acquire a development permit by emailing email@example.com.
