A number of trees have been cut on the periphery of the Dufferin School grounds on 3rd Avenue West and 11th Street West. A risk assessment was completed due to the age of the trees and because some are showing signs of failure. As a result, a contractor is cutting down four trees that belong to the Bluewater treerotDistrict School Board.

The City of Owen Sound confirmed which trees around the property belong to the school board and which to the city. It was determined that there are between four and six  large softwood trees outside the fence along the north border which belong to the City that are deemed dangerous -  they are split, stuck in the school's sugar maples, etc.). The City of Owen Sound has asked the contractor to cut those trees down as well.

The City will determine the number of trees which they will ultimately remove from their property/ownership.
