The Township of Scugog is committed to protecting and enhancing our urban and rural tree canopy, as trees are an essential part of our community and environment. Trees reduce the effects of many forms of pollution, create and enhance wildlife habitats, help reduce energy demands on your home, increase property values, and help make our Township beautiful.
As part of this commitment, the Township has identified a need for boulevard tree maintenance for one or more of the following reasons:
- To maintian an aesthetic shape of a tree;
- To remove dead, diseased, or interfering branches;
- To improve the structural integrity and health of the tree;
- To maintain safe clearances over the roadway, sidewalk, or walkway;
- To maintain safe sight lines;
- Other tree canopy management practices.
Commencing the week of March 17, 2014, the Township will be performing one or more of the above maintenance practices in selected areas. Please click here for the tree maintenance location map.
Please note: based on criteria, not all trees may be pruned in the specified locations.

Members of the public are invited to provide feedback about their experience with the provincial Greenbelt Plan and accompanying Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan (ORMCP) during a series of upcoming community consultation sessions or via an online survey.
Sessions will be held on:
- Thursday, March 6th from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Courtice Community Complex (2950 Courtice Rd.N., Courtice)

In 2015, the province is undertaking a mandatory 10-year review of its Greenbelt Plan, ORMCP and Niagara Escarpment Plan. In preparation, Durham Region has engaged a consultant to assist in conducting a consultation exercise intended to help influence the Province’s upcoming legislated review.
The comments received, via these outlets, will be used to develop a Regional submission that highlights the major themes, challenges and opportunities that emerged from the consultation process, with recommendations to address these findings. The final report will be forwarded to the Province to provide a Durham perspective about the 2015 Greenbelt Plan Review.
Residents who are unable to attend a consultation session are invited to participate in an online survey, which can be found at www.durham.ca/greenbeltreview.
