Peterborough tree bylaw needs an overhaul, says Monaghan Ward councillor

About 16 months ago Peterborough enacted a tree bylaw that required residents to get city permission anytime they wanted to remove a tree on their property (with exceptions for dead trees and Ash trees). In addition to the permit, homeowners were also required to replace those trees with new ones, something Monaghan Ward councillor says isn’t working. He says since the bylaw has come into effect it’s caused nothing but problems for residents, and he wants to see it pruned back, if not taken off the books all together.
