Ensuring Sustainability:
Municipal Tree Inventory

The Municipality will produce an inventory of all trees located on municipal rights-of-way within settlement areas (Leith, Annan, Bognor and the former Town) of the Municipality of Meaford, as well as at municipal facilities, cemeteries, and parks. Collating a tree inventory will allow the Municipality to properly manage its tree assets.
