Bolton Regional Councillor Good to Know

Emerald Ash Borer – What You need to Know


Millions of ash trees across Ontario have already been lost to the destructive pest, Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Last year, EAB was identified in some areas of Caledon. Untreated, infested trees will generally die in 2 – 3 years.

Many people don’t know if they have any ash trees in their neighbourhood or yard.

Please join Bolton & District Horticultural Society at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 where information about this devastating pest will be shared. The speakers will provide information about identifying ash trees and understanding what options are available. The goal of the meeting is to empower residents to take action in their own communities through treatment of existing healthy ash trees and planting of new trees.

Topic: Ash Trees at Risk – Emerald Ash Borer

Speaker: Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests. L.E.A.F. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the protection and improvement of the urban forest.

Date: Tuesday, March 18, 2014
