Save Your Sideroads sign now

This petition asks for your support to change policies on the removal of trees, shrubs and vegetation within road allowances by protecting scenic roadways in the Official Plan and by educating officials as to proper forestry management skills.

This campaign began in response to the destruction of shrubs and trees, including a 150 year old, healthy oak tree and also the scheduled removal of growth along a 1.1km stretch of Porter Rd, a scenic side road in Northumberland County, during routine brushing maintenance.

The native OAK, SUGAR MAPLE, SERVICEBERRY, RED AND GRAY DOGWOOD are not only a source
of habitat and food for wildlife but also an important part of stabilizing the banks and ditches. Beyond this, these trees lining our quiet country roads make our County one of the most picturesque in Southern Ontario.

All federal and provincial levels of government are focussing on presenting plans for today and for future goals in protecting our environment, aiding in the advance of global warming and in protecting and saving our morianes and natural habitation.

We are mounting this campaign, not only to save the re-shaping of Porter Rd. but to hopefully begin a movement which will ultimately make a difference to the future of all country roads in the County.
