Privately Owned Tree Removal
There are 3 reasons that the City of Grande Prairie would remove a privately owned tree:
1) When the crew is in an area already working and a resident from that area approaches them to remove or prune a private tree that is posing a safety hazard, the crew may do that work immediately providing the resident approves the quote.
2) When the crew is in an area already working and a resident approaches them to remove or prune a tree that is not posing a hazard, the crew may provide that service (again if resident approves the quote), and perform that work while they are still in the area, although it may be scheduled on a different day. The key is that the crew must still be working in the area.
3) When the crew is finished working in an area and a resident approaches them to prune or remove a tree that is not posing a safety hazard, the crew will advise the resident that no work will be done until they return to that area at a later time, typically the next season. If circumstances require a return to the area for work on city trees (i.e. to remove a safety hazard), the private work may be performed then (with the quote reflecting current pricing). If the resident requires the tree to be immediately removed or pruned, the crew will advise the resident to contact a private contractor.
"Area" is defined as the subdivision or block radius that the tree crew is working in as defined by the Parks Neighbourhood Map (e.g. Avondale area, Mountview Area, Country Club Estates, etc.)
Under no circumstances will the Parks Department solicit any private tree pruning or removal.

When forestry crews are busy at a job site you may notice pylons, barricades or other perimeter control safety equipment in place. It is important that all bystanders respect these safety buffers and stay well back. Workers need to keep most of their attention on the task at hand to ensure their own safety and bystander intrusions put everyone at risk. Falling debris is a serious hazard to workers and bystanders alike.
