Tree removal?

3.2 Permit not required - trees within buildings or structures
Notwithstanding Article 2 of this by-law, a permit is not required for the mJury or destruction of a tree within a building or structure, a solarium, rooftop garden, an interior courtyard having a soil depth of less than 1.5 metres above a built substructure, nursery and a fruit tree that provides fruit for human consumption.

What exactly does does within building or structure mean?

It means a tree within a building or structure. Where's the issue with that?
"The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is."
Just a guy who dabbles in lots of stuff learning along the way. I do have opinions, and readily share them!

Hmmm....throw a $300 deck around a tree to circumvent the tree removal bylaws? Ground level on deck blocks so no permit built deck, use old lumber from someone taking down a deck to sell it as not built yesterday.

Toronto Bylaw Definitions:
(835) Structure
means anything that is erected, built or constructed of one or more parts joined together. A vehicle is not a structure.
