Heritage Forest Initiative

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

“The Champlain Oaks” are a community of trees centuries old. Oaks this age in an urban environment are very rare. A surviving forest fragment interspersed with residential development is exceptional. If recognized now as a community or “forest fragment” of heritage value, they have the potential to live on for centuries more as a valuable genetic resource and living link to the history of human settlement in this area.

The Champlain Oaks Project is in the process of developing a proposal to amend the Urban Tree Conservation By-Law and the Municipal Trees and Natural Areas Protection By-Law to include a definition of “heritage trees” and a listing of “Champlain Oaks” so recognized in a Registry. Stay tuned.
