Draft Proposed Tree Species Replacement
To accompany the proposed update to the tree bylaw, a tree species reference guide has been developed to guide replacement tree decisions. For a replacement species to be acceptable to the District, its selection must be appropriate for the location context in terms of the site considerations and suitable locations defined in the table. Several attributes are provided to inform selection of a suitable species in different location contexts. In terms of future climate suitability, warmer and drier summers will favour species tolerant of dry to very dry sites.
