Today, a biologist will assess bird nesting activities at the Lansdowne site in the remaining treed areas that must be removed. If confirmed that there are no active nests on-site, the contractor will proceed this week with the removal of all remaining trees in this phase of work.
The tree removal is required to complete the soil remediation work on the site. When complete, the Lansdowne Park redevelopment project will create 18.5 acres of park and include 880 trees, nearly four times the trees and three times the greenspace than previously existed.
