Ash Tree Removals

Forestry staff are currently removing dead ash trees from woodlots across the city that have been infested with Emerald Ash Borer.

What type of work is being conducted?

Forestry staff will be removing dead ash trees from woodlots that have been infested by Emerald Ash Borer. Crews will be removing EAB-affected trees around the perimeter of the woodlots near or adjacent to residents’ private property and along sanctioned pathways throughout the woodlots.

In some cases, limb and trunk wood is left on site within the wooded area after work has been completed. By doing so, we do not disturb or affect the sensitive regeneration of native flora and fauna and encourage natural regeneration by providing materials for regrowth and habitat for woodland insects and animals.

Why are these trees being removed?

These ash trees have been infested by Emerald Ash Borer. Once infested by EAB, an ash tree dies quickly—leaving a dead or dying tree that poses safety risks.

Where can I receive updates on work being done?

Updates on this project will be posted on this webpage and will also be shared on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram social media channels.
