Photo from arborist report compared to photo taken 12/10/2023. Note the red scars where trees once stood.
After receiving the unsettling video of the decimation of a mature tree near the east parking lot yesterday, we came early this morning to evaluate the situation and, to our dismay, discovered at least 137 trees had been removed, which confirms our fear that tree-cutting has begun in earnest. The photograph above is one of many showing the loss of trees in various sections of the mainland parking lots.
We urge all advocates for Ontario Place to organize an immediate public demonstration to convey our outrage. We must act now. Stay tuned to these pages for updates.
Note: We have adjusted the number of trees cut down from 50 to 137 after a careful review of additional photography
