Urban Tree Canopy & Native Vegetation Policy

The Town of Parry Sound has an Urban Tree Canopy and Native Vegetation Policy in place which guides the municipality in protecting and enhancing the tree canopy and natural vegetation.

This policy applies to all properties and development, on public or private lands, in the Town of Parry Sound. It is a resource which can be referred to and utilized as guiding principles for residential, commercial and public purposes.

The policy serves as a guideline for private and public operations. It explains what an urban tree canopy is, the benefits, provides a list of native plantings and provides illustrations to assist property owners. It also provides a rough summary of current commercial trends such as green parking lots/green roofs.
