In order to continue the soil remediation work on the west side of the Horticulture Building, the contractor will be removing additional trees beginning Thursday, July 12.

A biologist visited the Lansdowne site on Tuesday and noted one American Robin's nest in the planned work area. The contractor has been instructed to retain the nesting tree and ensure that no other trees are removed within 25m of it. As a result, fewer trees will be removed on Thursday.

Residents will be advised of any future tree clearing and biologist's reports using the Lansdowne construction ebulletin and on ottawa.ca/newlansdowne.
