UPDATE: Special Committee of the Whole to Consider Private Tree Protection By-law

A special Committee of the Whole meeting will take place on Monday, January 24 at 1 p.m. where Council is expected to consider the draft Private Tree Protection By-law. At this meeting, there will be a presentation by staff on the proposed By-law and Council will have an opportunity to discuss and provide their feedback to staff. The agenda will be published online at newmarket.ca/meetings on January 19. You can tune into the meeting live on January 24 at 1 p.m. at newmarket.ca/meetings.



As Newmarket grows it is important to help keep as many trees as possible. We would especially like to keep mature trees since they provide the most benefits and have the most value. Please join this discussion on the value of mature trees and how a tree on your property contributes benefits to all of Newmarket. Feel free to share your opinions on the value of trees in Newmarket and how trees can best serve the Newmarket community.

We want to know: What is the best way to protect trees on private property?

Get involved by:

  • telling us your stories,
  • putting a pin on the map,
  • completing the survey, and
  • sharing your ideas about how to protect trees!

    The Town of Newmarket is considering revisions to how it protects and grows its Urban Forest.

    A key aspect of the planning process is engaging with community members and stakeholders to understand the urban forest today and to develop ways to ensure its health and protect the benefits that trees bring to our community. This survey is one way that the Town is seeking resident input.

    The survey information received will be used to help develop a direction for future protection of trees and natural areas within the Town. The results of this survey will be made available when staff report to members of Council on findings.

    Thank you for taking the time to participate in this survey and help shape our community!
