Coquitlam has a tree management bylaw (PDF) designed to protect trees, regulate cutting and ensure replacement of trees removed. The bylaw applies to all private properties in Coquitlam.
When redeveloping a property, impacts to neighbouring trees must also be considered. The bird nesting window in the City of Coquitlam exists between March 1st and August 31st. Tree removal during this period must ensure no nests or nesting birds are disturbed.
