Tree Bylaws

Cumberland does not currently regulate the removal of trees. In regards to lands surrounding the Village that are designed private managed forest, the BC Private Managed Forest Land Act does not permit a local government to do anything that would have the effect of restricting, directly or indirectly, a forest management activity. This means that the Noise Control Bylaw, or any tree regulation bylaw, or any other bylaw cannot apply to managed forest land.

Noise Control Bylaw

Cumberland does regulate noise in the Village in the Noise Control Bylaw. Please be mindful of your neighbours when using equipment to remove trees and other material.
