April 14th, 2017 — Two large trees on city property next to a construction site at 34th Avenue and Carnarvon Street in Vancouver’s westside were cut down just before the Easter weekend. There’s no outside indication the trees were dead or diseased. According to city hall, however, the trees had become unstable and dangerous because of extreme root damage which occured during construction of the house in the background. The fine to the builder could be tens of thousands of dollars per tree but in a new five million dollar home that’s peanuts.
