Emerald Ash Borer
City Ash Tree Removal Notice
City contracted crews will begin removing hazardous Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) infested Ash trees in Willowcreek Park.
EAB is an insect that attacks and kills all species of Ash trees native to North America. EAB has spread to Ontario, Quebec and Northeastern United States and has now infested Ash trees throughout Mississauga.
Dead and dying trees may be a safety issue. The Forestry Section has inspected all City-owned Ash trees on streets and in parks and continues to inspect trees in woodlots. The City has identified Ash trees that must be removed from City property.
City contracted crews will be removing EAB infested Ash trees on streets, in parks and woodlots. Removal will focus on high risk areas next to roadways, trails and paths, homes, schools and buildings/facilities.
Forestry is currently working on plans to replant woodlots. Each woodlot is unique and will require additional work to create individual plans for each site. For some, that may mean letting them regenerate naturally while others will have trees replanted.
For more information call 3-1-1 (905-615-4311, if outside city limits).
