Recreation trail - multi-use path

Consulting Arborist Services

As Consulting Arborist on this project, I undertook a survey and a tree inventory of the trees along a 2.3 km corridor of land that went through TRCA (Toronto Regional Conservation Authority) and Town of Markham lands. The impact the path construction would have on the trees was reported upon and a planting restoration plan was provided.

While carrying out the tree field work on site, I was able to draw on my arborist and landscape architect expertise to suggest some design refinements to the engineers relating to the path siting which retained more trees and reduced grading requirements.
