Demolition crews tore down large, mature trees today without a permit, according to Coun. Karen Stinz.

Stintz and other residents near Yonge Street and Lawrence Avenue posted images of demolished trees located at 41 Chatworth Drive.

The area is a construction site on private property, but Stinz says the crews did not have permission to tear down those trees because they were technically still within a ravine protection zone.

She added that the city will be pursuing charges against the developer.

The condo developer could not be reached for comment.
