Fruit Tree Removal Program
The presence of fruit trees in residential areas of Canmore is an attractant for bears.
This results in potential public safety concerns, property damage and concern for the well-being of the bears.
In an effort to reduce human-wildlife interactions, the Town is running a voluntary fruit tree removal program this Fall.
If you have a crabapple tree in your yard, you can have the tree removed at no cost to you by a certified arborist this September.
You can also have the tree replaced with a non-fruit bearing tree from an approved list.
