We are trying to spread awareness of a very severe pest endangering all ash trees in the GTA.The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has recently been detected in the City of Toronto. The EAB is an invading pest from Asia that attacks and kills all species of ash trees. All ash trees in Toronto are at risk of dying from this infestation. Mortality may occur in as short a period as one year, however, death normally occurs within 2-3 years of a tree becoming infested. The recent tree canopy study estimates that there are 860,000 ash trees in total on public and private lands. The initial areas of infestation detected in 2007 are likely to lose most of their ash trees by 2012. EAB will eventually spread to the rest of Toronto, killing most ash trees in the City by about 2015 – 2017 Permits are not always required to remove a tree. Our staff can better guide you in this process. Below are general guidelines to consider for each municipality.
