Mississauga, Toronto and the rest of GTA have by-laws to protect trees. Those by-laws are effective even on private property. Tree Care Specialists customers make frequent use of our ISA Certified Arborists who provide accurate arborist reports that assist in satisfying the requirements of local tree by-laws.
An arborist report is a document prepared by a certified arborist outlining the condition of a tree. It must outline the location, condition and areas of concern regarding the health of the specific tree, as well as any problem areas. Two sources of tree damage exist: biotic, from living sources such as insects and fungi, and, abiotic: from non-living sources such as construction activities, lightning, etc.
Arborist reports note all the problems that the tree has and provide recommendations of possible solutions to existing issues, for example: fertilization, pest control, or pruning and removal.
Homeowners, builders and developers looking to implement any construction activities in Toronto or Mississauga usually require tree preservation plans and/or permits to remove or injure trees. Tree Care Specialists ISA Certified Arborists have been creating tree preservation plans since the implementation of Ontario’s first municipal private tree by-laws passed by the City of Toronto in the 1990′s.
