The City of Pointe-Claire will be felling dead or dangerous ash trees between October 3 and November 18, from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Terra-Cotta Natural Park. These trees line the path along Saint-Louis Avenue, and Coolbreeze Avenue in the eastern part of the park.

Some of the ash trees will be totemmed when possible. This technique consists of removing all the branches and retaining part of the trunk, which contributes to the park’s biodiversity and provides shelter or a nesting site for birds and mammals.

The work will require sections of the trails to be closed. For everyone’s safety during the work, park users are asked to stay outside the safety perimeters.

New native trees will be planted in this sector in 2022 and 2023.  Through the diversity of their species, they will ensure the development of a healthy urban forest.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
