The Township of Woolwich's Public Works department is responsible for maintaining all municipal trees located within our road allowances. With your cooperation and assistance in helping to create a more beautiful and healthy environment we can ensure
continued enjoyment of these trees for many years to come.
You can assist us with new boulevard trees by watering the soil to soak it slowly, around the base of the tree at least
once every ten days, to help establish the roots.
- watering every day as the roots can become water-logged;
- mounding up mulch or soil at the base of the tree as it causes the water to run away from the roots and starves the surface roots of oxygen;
- cultivating, digging or planting borders around the base of the tree as it may damage newly forming roots; and
- using a trimmer too close to the bark of the tree.
Please report any problems if a boulevard tree appears to be dead, is damaged or requires pruning and staff will come and look at it.
Yard waste collection is offered by the Region of Waterloo, please watch for your copy of the collection calendar to come in the mail or contact the Region at 519-575-4400 for further information.
Do not rake your leaves onto the road as there is no pick up for this and they end up clogging the sewer drains.
There is a fine of $125 for depositing debris or refuse on Township roads.
