Colwood needs tree retention bylaw

Regarding Latoria Road developments in Colwood and in respect to mismanaged “harvesting of trees”

Regarding Latoria Road developments in Colwood and in respect to mismanaged “harvesting of trees” being practised, the “clear cut” is becoming more obvious with these developments along Latoria Road.

Although the rezoning applications were approved, I feel very strongly that a bylaw needs to be put into place on the percentage of harvest trees that can be taken from an area, along with a percentage of greenspace.

I have lived in this area since 1971 and I am concerned with the environment, along with wildlife habitat and streams that are being affected.

What will Colwood look like if this practice continues?
