May 25 to October 15: Inventory of ash trees on the territory

The City of Pointe-Claire wishes to inform you that from May 25 to October 15 a company specialized in urban forestry will be conducting an inspection of the ash trees on the City’s private and public property. Recommendations will be made to owners of ash trees, based on the trees’ state of decay, particularly due to the emerald ash borer.

To establish this ash tree inventory on private property, the firm mandated by the City will need to access certain backyards.

We wish to remind you that it is mandatory to fell an ash tree when more than 30% of its branches are dead. A grant is offered to homeowners to fell ash trees with a diameter of 25 centimetres or more. The grant covers 50% of the felling cost, up to a maximum of $500 per tree.

This inspection is the first phase in a project that aims to establish an inventory of all of the trees on the territory. This project comes under the Urban Forestry Policy, which seeks to maintain and enhance the urban canopy and will also make it possible to update the Strategy to battle ash borers

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
