Kingston Residents Invited To Session About Trees Near Airport

Published on: 2011/11/09 - in Releases

Residents are invited to attend an upcoming Public Information Session about the necessary removal or trimming of trees in the area of Kingston Airport, including some on residential properties.

The Public Information Session is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Royal Canadian Air Force Association (416 Wing) building at the corner of Hampton Gray Gate and Len Birchall Way.

“This is about safety at Kingston Airport. Trees grow and certain trees have become too tall and are encroaching on landing flight paths, so they have to be trimmed or removed,” says David Snow, Manager of Kingston Airport.

The City has hired a professional arborist to work with affected property owners and assist them with making the decision to trim the trees or remove them.

Landowners are responsible for complying with Kingston Airport Zoning Regulations under the Federal Aeronautics Act and must remove natural growth when it violates those Regulations.
