If the new pool and fitness centre is built in the park where originally planned, at the corner of Quadra and Pembrooke, sadly yes, some – not all – would we have to be removed.
The Preliminary Arborist Report identifies trees that would need to be removed. Ideally, if a tree is removed from any space, it should be replaced. The replacement of these trees should be part of the future park plan which can be developed during the building design process. In fact, there is an opportunity to increase the number of trees in the park.
