Trees on school district property
Trees located on school district property are the responsibility of the school district. The school district engages professional arbourists to maintain trees on school district property. An arbourist hired by neighbours or other outside parties cannot access school district property to perform any work on school district trees without the authorization of the school district. For liability reasons, the school district's arbourist must do the assessment and work.
If neighbours or community members have concerns about trees on school district property, the school district will work to address the concerns. All concerns that are identified to be a safety issue will be addressed. While the school district will attempt to attend to other concerns, concerns solely of a cosmetic nature may not be addressed.
Trees neighbouring school district property
If a tree next to a school district property poses safety concerns, the school district will contact the landowner so that the landowner can attend to the concern. For liability reasons, landowners must use their own arbourist to do the assessment and work. School district arbourists cannot do work on land not owned by the school district.
