The Proposed Project

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project which consists of removing dead, dying and dangerous trees across the base and trimming specified trees to remove all dead and dangerous limbs. Tree removal includes the removal of wood, stump grinding, removal of debris, and landscaping with topsoil and seed. Approximately 115 trees will be removed at various locations across Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Kingston, Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) and Fort Frontenac. An Archaeologist will be present for trees requiring removal and stump grinding at RMC and Fort Frontenac. A tree replacement program will be implemented subsequent to the tree removals.
