The Town is working on an Urban Forest Management Plan and we want your feedback on how we can protect and plant more trees in Innisfil. Do you think your neighbours should be allowed to freely cut down trees on their property? Would you be supportive of the Town planting fruit trees in town? Do you feel like there are fewer trees in your area? What are your thoughts on a tree by-law being implemented? We want to know all of your thoughts before we make any decisions.

How can you participate?

Background Information:

Innisfil’s “Urban Forest” includes all trees within neighbourhoods, including privately owned trees, street trees, park trees, and protected forests. The purpose of this management plan is to provide a long-term strategic plan for overseeing all urban forests moving forward.

The UFMP will be composed of three elements:

  • a strategic vision that maximizes the long-term benefits of trees, enhances Our Place (the Town’s Official Plan) urban forestry policies, and align the actions of municipal staff;
  • a plan made up of actions to establish targets and implement policies; and,
  • a by-law to regulate the removal of public and private trees within neighbourhoods.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The first survey for the Urban Forestry Management Plan captures your views on the impact of urban forests on your home and neighborhood. Along with brand new information about the distribution and total area of trees across each settlement area, the results of this study will be provided to Council to help them understand resident's views on urban forests.
