City of Markham owned portion of my front yard
City of Markham sent two of their staffs to my home and they gave me their suggestion based on my idea.
At the same time, I asked the City staffs about the tree planted by the City in my front yard and I thought it was too close to my house. The staff took a tape measure and measured from the pavement of road side up to the tree. The City staff told me that it is within the range, 8 feet from the pavement toward my house are owned by the City of Markham.
The City staff told me that we cannot cut or move the tree without notifying the city government. But it will likely be declined by the City even if we request the tree to be moved.
I also read a previous discussion in this forum regarding the tree planted by the City.
A forum member provided info about Markham tree bylaws and if anyone violated the bylaws could be fine for up to ten thousand dollars.
I wonder if anyone has been fine for violating the Markham tree bylaws before?
