Tree Removal on Public Reserve - Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton's Policy No. 2016-03 allows for the regulation of tree removal of public reserves in areas of concentrated population. These areas include the Lake Winnipeg developments, Okno, Morweena & Riverton. Ratepayers must complete a form to request permission to remove standing tree(s) that are dangerous to the public or private property. The Public Works department will inspect, mark the tree(s), and provide written approval if granted. No standing tree(s) are to be removed from the Public Reserve land without written permission from the Municipality. Dead-fall is to be removed solely for the purpose of firewood. The dead-fall must be completely removed from the public property; piling of deadfall on public reserve land is not permitted. Any tampering with standing tree(s) is not permitted. Tampering includes, but is not limited to, scoring, notching, salting and burning. If tampering or unauthorized removal occurs the Municipality will purse those responsible with monetary fines and potential RCMP involvement. Please see below for a Tree Removal on Public Reserve form.
