Felling of dead or dangerous trees in Terra-Cotta Natural Park

The City of Pointe-Claire will be felling dead or dangerous trees between March 18 and April 15, 2021, from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., at Terra-Cotta Natural Park. These trees are located along the trails in the north section, between the entrances on Maywood and Coolbreeze avenues.

The work involves cutting down 318 dead or dangerous trees, 290 of which are ash trees, and totemming 27 trees, a technique that consists in removing all the branches and retaining part of the trunk, which contributes to the park’s biodiversity and provides shelter or a nesting site for birds and mammals.

The work will require sections of trails to be closed. For everyone’s safety during the work, park users are asked to stay outside the safety perimeters.

In 2021, more than 450 new trees will be planted in the park, including 200 native trees that are at least two metres high.Through the diversity of their species, these new trees will ensure the development of a healthier urban forest.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
