Technical Tree Manual

Consultation has concluded

The City of Guelph knows that trees play a vital role in our health and well being. Trees make numerous and valuable contributions to individuals, neighborhoods, our city and even globally. All trees in Guelph contribute to our urban forest and to the combined benefits our planet receives from each tree.

We have created a tree technical manual that is designed to help people understand the standards and guidelines for establishing, protecting and maintaining a healthy urban forest in the City of Guelph. The manual is to be used by private landowners, businesses and public organizations for activities involving trees

We have created a tree technical manual that is designed to help people understand the standards and guidelines for establishing, protecting and maintaining a healthy urban forest in the City of Guelph. The manual is to be used by private landowners, businesses and public organizations for activities involving trees on both public and private lands in the City of Guelph.

The TTM’s project scope is not meant to review or revise existing City policies, such as the Official Plan or the Private Tree Bylaw.
