Determine the monetary value of any tree according to the current Shade Tree Evaluation Procedure of the International Society of Arboriculture for any purpose of this Regulation, or where another evaluation is more suited to local needs by that formula. Supervise the carrying out of any agreement made pursuant to Section 5 of the St. John's Tree Regulations. Ensure that all public trees are maintained and all work is done in accordance with the provisions of the St. John's Tree Regulations and the tree program, and in a manner which will encourage the development and retention of a healthy, attractive and safe place for public trees.
