Tree Pruning in Coquitlam’s City Centre

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Thursday, February 12, 2015 – In an effort to improve safety in Coquitlam’s City Centre area, trees will be pruned  on some City-owned properties.

Further to recommendations put forward by the Coquitlam RCMP, proactive measures will include lift-pruning the trees and reducing the forest undergrowth on a number of undeveloped forested areas. These actions will improve sightlines across the properties, while discouraging undesirable use.

Properties in question are: 

  • Parcels in the block east of City Hall (3000 Guildford Way) between Hefley Crescent and Guildford Way.
  • Parcel between the City Centre Aquatic Complex (1210 Pinetree Way) and Douglas College (1250 Pinetree Way).

The work is scheduled to start the week of February 9th and is anticipated to be complete prior to the bird nesting window which begins in March.

For more information, residents can contact Parks, Recreation and Culture Services at 604-927-6300.
