Offending tree cut down
Stephen Dombowsky of Axe and Timber tree services is harnessed onto a tree he is cutting down for a northwest area property owner. The tree was growing into the alley. A letter from the city bylaw enforcement officer said the tree contravened a section of the boulevard bylaw that requires abutting owners to maintain a neat appearance. The bylaw enforcement officer instructed the property owner to cut the the tree back even with fence. The bylaw makes no mention of trees needing to be trimmed even with the owner’s fence.
