Following the black walnut court case
Updated: Apr 22, 2020
A trial date was set today in the case of a Champlain Park property owner and local contractor charged with violating Ottawa’s Urban Tree Conservation Bylaw.
The tree that prompted Forestry Services to proceed with charges is a black walnut. Estimated to be 90 years old, it grew at the north end of Daniel Avenue.
The accused first appeared in provincial court in December. The trial date agreed upon today is April 3 at 9 a.m. in Room 101, provincial court offices, 100 Constellation Drive. The trial is expected to span 2 hours.
