Bracebridge, ON; 12/31/08
Bracebridge passes tree-cutting bylaw It’s official, the town of Bracebridge now has a bylaw to govern where, when and which trees can be cut down across a large section of the municipality. Last week, town council gave final approval to a tree-cutting bylaw more than a year-and-a-half in the works. A tree-clearing permit is now required for everyone in Bracebridge removing trees in areas defined as urban or near-urban, lands within 60 metres of a navigable waterway, lands within 70 meters of Hwy. 11, and any lands in a flood plain or that are zoned environmental protection.
