Damaged trees and fallen branches can be unpredictable. The City of Brampton recommends that residents seek qualified, insured tree care professionals to perform work on branches larger than 15 cm (6 inches) in diameter, or on trees within 4 metres of overhead lines.
Contact us to report City trees that are leaning on private fences, sheds and homes. City staff will then inspect these situations for immediate hazards.
For trees on private property, property owners must seek City approval in order to cut a tree with a trunk diameter larger than 30 cm, and 1.37m from the ground.
