Urban forest tree pruning – Bell Road & Windsor Street

Monday, Feb.

10, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – As part of the implementation of HRM’s recently adopted Urban Forest Master Plan, street tree pruning on Bell Road between Sackville Street and Robie Street will resume today (Monday, Feb. 10). Street tree pruning will also start today on Windsor Street between Quinpool Road and Duncan Street. Weather permitting, work on both streets will be completed by Wednesday, Feb. 12.

The Urban Forest Master Plan outlines the value in being proactive with street tree pruning activities. Damage to street trees – as well as nearby utility lines – can be avoided with more regular cycles of tree pruning, rather than simply reacting on an “as needed” basis whenever there’s a problem. Regular pruning can also extend the life and improve the canopy of street trees.

Both Windsor Street and Bell Road will be open to traffic however there will be temporary lane closures while pruning takes place. Pedestrians may also experience delays due to temporary sidewalk closures. Motorists are reminded to reduce speed when entering the work area. Drivers are encouraged to use alternative routes due to the potential for delays.

HRM apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this tree-pruning project may cause.
