Disappearing Trees At Roncesvalles and Fermanagh

Last week we noticed that two large trees at 150 Fermanagh Avenue (at Roncesvalles) had been cut down. The BIA asked what happened to those trees, and here is what we learned from the City:

The trees were on private property, and the owner requested permission from the city to remove the trees. One was apparently unhealthy, and the other had a large damaged branch and was beginning to damage the building foundation.

The Urban Forestry department gave permission to the owner to remove the two trees on the condition that four new trees would be planted on the property to replace them.

The BIA hopes to see those new trees planted in the spring.
