City Moves To Chop Tree Trimming Backlog

The City of Windsor is still struggling with a significant back log of tree timing requests.

A city administration report says that there is a backlog of more than 2,200 trimming work orders.

The report outlines that the majority of these work orders were produced from the thousands of requests supervisors have received over the last two years as well as “poor contractor performance that occurred in 2014-2015.” As a result, many of the work orders are now between 18 months to 2 years old.

In an effort to reduce the back log as quickly as possible, the city issued a request for proposal for the trimming of 1,500 trees.

As a result, Ontario Line Clearing, Forest Glade Tree Experts and Neuheimer Tree Care demonstrated “superior qualifications, experience, availability and cost.”  Each company will receive 500 work orders for tree trimming, located in the City’s East, West and South Areas.

The total cost for the trimming comes in at $267,934.08.
