Dear Sir:

RE: Rare salamanders and urban forest management

Your request for information on the above was discussed at the July meeting of the Cambridge Environmental Advisory Committee. The following information was requested to be passed on to you:

The City of Cambridge does not actively log City-owned woodlots. Only "hazard" trees are removed, and in many cases, the felled trees are left in the woodlot to rot naturally with the detritus of the woodland floor.

The routing for a recently constructed sanitary sewer trunk line in west Cambridge was planned so that it avoided critical salamander habitat. Additionally, amphibian ponds were created along the sewer route where the opportunity presented itself.

The Regional Municipality of Waterloo has circulated a draft tree by-law which aims to make the current by-law more environmentally friendly in terms of forest management. You may wish to contact Mr. Christopher Gosselin at (519) 575-4501 for more information on this initiative.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned.

 Yours truly - April Souwand, M.A., M.C.I.P. Senior Environmental Planner

It will make a difference!
