This fence is the type of fence required by the city to protect trees during construction or renovation of a home. It marks off a Tree Protection Zone (TPZ) around the tree where there are to be no grade changes, no storage of materials, no hard surfacing, and no vehicle parking. The city also requires that a deposit of around $5,000 be put down that will be returned if the tree is unharmed at the end of the work. If the tree dies you forfeit the money and you also must plant new trees in its place. This one was spotted in the Annex neighbourhood where the homes in this pic sell for a few million dollars each!
