City contracted crews will be working in the Ward 3 community over the next couple weeks to remove street trees infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Work will be taking place in Zone 27 from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All trees scheduled for removals have been marked with an orange X. After the initial tree removal, crews will removal the tree stumps, repair the ground with topsoil and reseed.

All works will be weather dependant.

All city-owned street and park trees removed due to EAB will be replanted within the community.

Street trees will be replanted approximately one year after the stump is removed. The time may be affected due to the short planting season and weather conditions.

Park trees will be replanted over several years. This is due to the high number of trees that were removed from our parks, the short planting season and the weather conditions.
