The maintenance and protection of trees


General information​

The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux takes to heart the green heritage of the urban forest and has become involved to ensure the protection and management of its forests for future generations. The conservation of urban trees is imperative, as it contributes to the improvement of the air quality throughout the whole city and to the well-being of all citizens.

The City has created tree planting and scheduled maintenance programs as well as a bylaw to protect trees. A GPS inventory of trees and a follow-up that gathers data-processed information can provide particulars about a distinct street and the presence of illnesses or insects on the territory, as well as information about a specific tree as needed. The City is responsible for pruning branches, clearing infrastructures and streets, public safety, planting to compensate for tree losses and planning projects in the absence of trees.

The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux has adopted a Bylaw concerning the maintenance and protection of trees. It applies to private trees on front, side and back yards as well as public trees on curbs, in parks, green spaces and woodlands.

Only the City is authorized to proceed with the pruning or felling of a public or common tree. If a tree belongs to the City and needs to be pruned, evaluated or felled, or if you wish to plant a tree, you can submit a request to the Public Works Department by emailing at or by calling 514-684-1034.
