Trees Cut During House Move

Trees Cut During House Move

WINNIPEG - A man involved in moving a house in Charleswood has been charged with mischief after mature trees were cut on the weekend so the home could travel along Roblin Boulevard.

Winnipeg police say a load permit was issued but the accessibility of the route wasn't confirmed as the permit requires.

Area councillor Kevin Klein says residents starting hearing chainsaws about 5 a.m. Saturday.

He says cutting and even trimming city trees is destruction of public property and he's already working at getting the trees replaced.

The house eventually made its way out of Winnipeg.
