Tree Cutting FAQs

Does Innisfil have a tree cutting by-law?

To verify if there are any restrictions on your land, prior to the removal of trees, please contact the Town

Tree cutting is prohibited on any lands that are subject to the Shoreline Permit Process and/or Site Plan Control, without prior approval from the Town. This includes, but is not limited to: waterfront homes, commercial, and industrial properties. Additionally, the County of Simcoe has a tree cutting by-law for properties that contain more than 1 hector of woodlands.  Your property may also be regulated by a Conservation Authority or there may be a restricted covenant registered on title.
