Trees on Private Property

The City of Mississauga’s Private Tree Protection By-Law 254-12 applies to all trees on private property including trees damaged during the recent ice storm. The By-law was suspended due to the ice storm but as of February 1st 2014, the By-law has been reinstated.

Trees on private property are the responsibility of the property owner. For larger trees and debris, it is recommended that a professional private tree contractor be called to complete the work. City crews cannot go onto private property to clear private trees that have fallen on private property.

Property owners can remove structurally unsound trees under 15 cm (6 in) in diameter on their own property without a permit. Property owners removing three or more trees larger than 15 cm (6 in) in diameter require a permit. Visit the Private Tree Protection By-law page for complete details.

The cutting and removal of trees and related debris is a specialised skill and we encourage residents to hire a professional arborist to do the work for them.

Learn more about the City’s forestry program.
