Trees are so precious that almost every municipality wants to discourage their abusive felling. This is not surprising when you think of all the pleasures they provide us:
-To cool us in summer in periods of great heat.
-Absorb sound or reduce erosion.
-To constitute a site "recreational or of dwelling" privileged by the birds or by the urban fauna.
Contribute to the creation of a soothing, nature-like setting.
This is why Montreal, like many other municipalities, has regulations regarding tree cutting. It is essential that you refer to this bylaw for proper interpretation. This page is provided for your use only as an overview.
