The Douglas Fir

by The Tree Lady,
I feel it is imperative to maintain the essential character of South Surrey and North Surrey also, by saving both the Douglas Fir and Western Cedar wherever possible. This can achieved in many ways. Firstly, maintaining the street trees, (168 north of 24th for example.) Set backs of new developments have been brought far to close to the road, (7 feet) making it almost impossible for the mature 100 foot trees to survive.

Please don't forget the Rural Designation areas such as Country Woods. Create some laws with teeth in them to keep new house sizes to a proportion that does not lead to most of the mature, beautiful trees being removed. Remember that one's neighbour's trees greatly impact the beauty of the district overall. Houses being built these days are huge, in some cases, spoiling the beauty and environmental health of the whole district.
