District prosecutes boulevard tree cutters at 29/31 Glenmore Drive
Dec 12, 2017
The District of West Vancouver is prosecuting the owner-developer of 29 Glenmore Drive and 31 Glenmore Drive for the unlawful cutting of two mature Norway maple trees on the District-owned boulevard adjacent to those properties.
The owner-developer applied to the District for permission to remove these trees and was refused. After this permission was denied, the trees were cut without permits.
District bylaws prohibit any person from cutting a tree or engaging another person to cut a tree on a District boulevard without permission. Violation of these prohibitions constitutes an offence, punishable on summary conviction in the Provincial Court of BC by fines of $10,000 per count.
