Hydro One commits to trimming trees in Beaverbrook

By Jessica Cunha, Ottawa Community News, September 1, 2017

Hydro One says it will continue to trim trees within the Beaverbrook easement for the time being, as opposed to clear-cutting the area.

Chief operating officer Greg Kiraly wrote a letter to residents after forestry crews went through homeowners’ backyards to mark trees within the easement.

“It is my commitment to you that we will pursue an approach similar to Hydro One’s urban maintenance practices employed in the Beaverbrook area in 2012, which will involve trimming methods rather than removing healthy vegetation, where possible,” he said in the letter, also posted on the Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association’s website.
