Felling of trees infested with the emerald ash borer in parks

As part of its emerald ash borer control strategy and in an effort to preserve healthy trees, the City of Pointe-Claire will be felling 375 ash trees infested with the emerald ash borer between February and May 2021. These infested ash trees are located in parks and green spaces and along roads.

As part of the 2015–2022 emerald ash borer control strategy, over 300 ash trees are cut down each year. Some 800 new trees are planted on public roads and in parks during the same period. Through the diversity of their species, these new trees will ensure the development of a healthier urban forest.

New trees are expected be planted in the fall of 2021.

Hydro-Québec will also cut down about a hundred dead or dangerous trees between February and April 2021 on its land throughout the City. At certain times, the contractor will need to access the backyards of a few properties. These owners have been notified, and the contractor will carry out any necessary repairs to the properties after the work is completed.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
