Advisory to the Neighbourhood—West Side Update (Trees)

Friday, April 24, 2015

This advisory concerns the removal of two maple trees on the museum’s property at the corner of O’Connor Avenue and McLeod Street. The trees are in poor health, and for health and safety reasons, they will be removed on Tuesday, April 28. Where possible, stumps and large branches will be kept and incorporated into the landscaping plans for the “Regions of Canada” gardens.

Specific details about this landscaping, including timelines, will be shared once plans are soon finalized. The landscaping is expected to start around mid to late May. The plans include maintaining existing healthy trees, as well as the addition of new greenery that includes trees and shrubs. Also, note that the museum continues to actively monitor the health and safety of trees on the site through its existing landscaping inspections.

Udpates will be shared through advisories and our web site at
