Thousands of trees make up Whistler’s forests, which characterize our resort community and provide abundant environmental, recreational, aesthetic, economic and health benefits. The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) has policies and processes in place to protect trees from unnecessary harm or removal.

The short answer is YES YOU CAN in a lot of circumstances. For more information visit the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s information page at http://ow.ly/QkXk30e5tvY

I have also attached a copy of the permit application as at August 1st, 2017 if you would like to see the exact questions they will ask.

As always, call or email if I can be of service.

There is no doubt about it, Whistler has an incredible community. Donating to local charities is one of the ways that many join together to share commitments, support causes and think about others. This doesn’t have to mean contributing in a monetary sense, many community members volunteer or fundraise as a means of giving back. As a result of the involvement and support of so many, local businesses and non-profit groups thrive here in town and in turn, better Whistler as a whole. Here are a number of local charities that need our support!

WAG (Whistler Animals Galore)

Founded in 1982 when the need for an animal rescue service in the Sea to Sky Corridor was identified, WAG has been responsible for the safety of those that cannot speak for 35 years…

Having a clear idea of your budget is one of the first steps you must take into account when scouting for your new home. This includes how much you are willing to spend on your new home and how much you will spend to customize your home once purchased.

Despite being a world-class resort destination Whistler maintains a tight-knit community. The Community Enrichment Program (CEP) is one example of this, and this year the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) awarded 28 non-profits with $134,575 of grant funding through the program.
