Starting Saturday morning, sections of Lorne Avenue will be closed between Taylor Street and 4th Street for tree pruning. This work is expected to take 2 days to complete, weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Winter is the optimal season to complete pruning as it provides better visibility and easier removal of dead and dying limbs. Winter pruning also reduces the risk of the spread of disease.
