Stage 2 LRT Confederation Line Tree Removal

Project Status: 
Underway

Stage 2 LRT Confederation Line Tree Removal

Overview

Please be advised that as part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, crews and equipment will begin area clearing as part of site preparation work for guideway and station construction. This includes site mobilization, tree and vegetation removal and area clearing in October and November 2019.

Area restoration, tree replacement and greenspace re-seeding will be completed as part of the final local area finishing works. An overall average tree replacement ratio of 2:1 (two trees for every one removed) will be replanted along the Stage 2 LRT alignment.

Tree Loss Mitigation and Replacement

The following measures will be taken to mitigate tree loss:

  • Limit clearing to only where required in temporary easement areas
  • Leave trees along property lines (backyards, businesses, parks) where possible
  • Design of pathways to incorporate existing trees
  • Inventory and compensate (ratio dependent on size, species) where removal is unavoidable
  • Critical Root Zone protection for trees along limits

Schedule

Area clearing is currently scheduled during daytime construction hours between 7am and 10pm Monday to Saturday, and between 9am to 10pm on Sunday’s and holidays.
