Hydro crews anticipate that they will be able to start the trimming and removal of trees and brush in 2020, weather permitting. As soon as I have more information about the schedule for 2020, I will make sure to reach out.
Forestry Technicians will mark trees and brush in the corridor within the next two weeks, weather permitting. If vegetation is marked with an orange “H”, dot or ribbon, it will be removed. If vegetation is marked with a blue dot, it will be trimmed or pruned to ensure the vegetation remaining is a safe distance from the transmission lines.

Imperial Oil is currently conducting preventative pipeline maintenance in the Credit River Valley on the Pinchin Property and Hydro lands. The Imperial Credit River Valley Project is part of a much larger region-wide project that extends across 5 municipalities between Hamilton and Toronto.
The City granted Imperial Oil access to the Pinchin Property through a Consent to Enter Agreement to accommodate construction access and staging for the works. In order to facilitate the safe movement of workers and equipment, the existing pathway in the Pinchin Property was widened and some trees were removed along Mississauga Road for construction staging. Upon completion of the works, Imperial will re-vegetate this field and have contributed $21,432.80 for future tree replanting on the Property.
The contractors began mobilizing on-site last week with the work expected to be completed by the end of July 2019. The impacted areas will be reinstated in the Fall of 2019.
The Pinchin Farm is a beautiful property as John Stewart has described and we are looking forward to the enhancement of the property after the works are complete. The Credit River Parks Strategy provides recommendations and a potential redevelopment concept plan. The 2019-2028 Capital Budget recommends the Pinchin Property for a phased development commencing in 2025; although this project is currently unfunded. When the Pinchin Property is approved for redevelopment, public consultation will be part of the process.
