密市近日更新私人物业树木附例,业主若要砍伐一棵直径大于6吋(约15厘米)的树木,需预先获得市府批准,并在砍树后重新种植一棵新树。对于状态良好的健康树木,市府有可能拒绝发出批文。

为了更好地保护密市的树木,确保该市的树木附例符合当前的城市林业标准,市议会通过更新公共及私家树木附例,将于今年4月1日起生效。

密市的《公共树木附例》(Public Tree By-law)规管市府物业上的树木种植、维护和移除,而《私人树木附例》(Private Tree By-law)则规管私人物业上的树木移除和保护。

密市社区服务专员罗比洛斯(Jodi Robillos)指出,市府正在采取更有力的行动,保护密市的树木。更新后的附例,不仅保护城市街道和公园内30多万棵树木,还将扩展到私人物业范围的树木。她说:“市府认识到树木对好像密市等大城市的环境的重要性,它们为野生动物提供遮荫和栖息地,同时过滤污染和控制洪水。”

现规定砍3棵以上须申请

更新后的公共树木附例,对“城市树”和“共享树”有更清晰的定义;任何人禁止存放会影响树根健康的物料、设备或任何物品;在树木保护区内的工程需获得批准并禁止任何地基改变;禁止液体、气体或固体物质接触树根系统;禁止移除自然区域内掉落或被砍伐的任何木碎和树枝;禁止在公共土地上种植树木。

私人树木附例方面,最重要的更新是业主在伤害、破坏或砍伐任何一棵直径为15厘米(6吋)或更大的树木前,必须向市府申请许可证。现行的附例,规定业主在砍伐3棵或以上树木,才需要申请批准。

市府指出,直径为15厘米的树,通常是一棵成熟或半成熟的树,对城市森林的整体健康作出贡献。

然而,市府是否批准申请,则会根据树木的健康状况而定。

位于庭院内部的树木,也将不再免于树木砍伐许可程序。每移除一棵直径15厘米的树木,需要重新种植一棵新树。如果移除的树木直径为45厘米,则需要重新种植3棵新树。未经许可,不得伤害或移除新种植树木。

市府还修改了费用和收费细则,新的树木砍伐许可证费用,第一棵树为304元,之后每增加一棵,费用为109.86元。星岛记者报道
