密市近日更新私人物業樹木附例,業主若要砍伐一棵直徑大於6吋(約15厘米)的樹木,需預先獲得市府批准,並在砍樹後重新種植一棵新樹。對於狀態良好的健康樹木,市府有可能拒絕發出批文。

為了更好地保護密市的樹木,確保該市的樹木附例符合當前的城市林業標準,市議會通過更新公共及私家樹木附例,將於今年4月1日起生效。

密市的《公共樹木附例》(Public Tree By-law)規管市府物業上的樹木種植、維護和移除,而《私人樹木附例》(Private Tree By-law)則規管私人物業上的樹木移除和保護。

密市社區服務專員羅比洛斯(Jodi Robillos)指出,市府正在採取更有力的行動,保護密市的樹木。更新後的附例,不僅保護城市街道和公園內30多萬棵樹木,還將擴展到私人物業範圍的樹木。她說:「市府認識到樹木對好像密市等大城市的環境的重要性,它們為野生動物提供遮蔭和棲息地,同時過濾污染和控制洪水。」

現規定砍3棵以上須申請

更新後的公共樹木附例,對「城市樹」和「共享樹」有更清晰的定義;任何人禁止存放會影響樹根健康的物料、設備或任何物品;在樹木保護區內的工程需獲得批准並禁止任何地基改變;禁止液體、氣體或固體物質接觸樹根系統;禁止移除自然區域內掉落或被砍伐的任何木碎和樹枝;禁止在公共土地上種植樹木。

私人樹木附例方面,最重要的更新是業主在傷害、破壞或砍伐任何一棵直徑為15厘米(6吋)或更大的樹木前,必須向市府申請許可證。現行的附例,規定業主在砍伐3棵或以上樹木,才需要申請批准。

市府指出,直徑為15厘米的樹,通常是一棵成熟或半成熟的樹,對城市森林的整體健康作出貢獻。

然而,市府是否批准申請,則會根據樹木的健康狀況而定。

位於庭院內部的樹木,也將不再免於樹木砍伐許可程序。每移除一棵直徑15厘米的樹木,需要重新種植一棵新樹。如果移除的樹木直徑為45厘米,則需要重新種植3棵新樹。未經許可,不得傷害或移除新種植樹木。

市府還修改了費用和收費細則,新的樹木砍伐許可證費用,第一棵樹為304元,之後每增加一棵,費用為109.86元。星島記者報道
