Your tree or the city?

If branches or roots from a neighbouring property are encroaching on your own property, the City of Laval recommends that disputes be settled between neighbours, as it cannot intervene in neighbour-to-neighbour relations.

In the case of a tree belonging to the City of Laval, you may contact our Service des travaux publics et environnement urbain if:

  A tree looks like it is going to fall;

  The branches are harming and obstructing a public road;

  The roots are seriously damaging your property, etc.

Prohibited trees : the poplar and the weeping willow.

One cannot take the law into your own hands. It is prohibited to cut branches or roots of a tree located on public property or on a public road. Only the City's Service des travaux publics et environnement urbain can intervene and take the necessary action.
