Why might my tree not be replaced?

There are certain circumstances where a replacement tree will not be provided in the same location as the previous tree, or at all.  These circumstances include;

  • Proximity to driveways
  • Proximity to other trees
  • Narrow parkways
  • Utility conflicts, both overhead or below ground
  • Proximity to fire hydrants, water values or underground "buffalo-boxes".
  • Proximity to utility poles
  • Proximity to traffic signs or signals
  • Property owner preference - request by property owners to opt-out of the replacement tree will be considered on a case-by-case basis, with an effort to accommodate them wherever practical.
