Letter regarding improvements to Tree Protection By-laws

As our city grows, it's important that growth is mindful of the environment and the needs of the communities across the city. The City of Toronto is aiming to increase and enhance the tree canopy in our city, and also enacts by-laws to ensure that current trees are protected. 

While these by-laws are in place, there is still an opportunity to improve the protections and processes surrounding trees going forward.

In response to item PE14.3, a motion to improve enforcement of the City's tree by-laws, I wrote a letter in support of this initiative .
