Ash Tree Replacement Pilot Program

5 09 2018

The city of Ottawa has partnered with the South Nation Conservation Authority to offer a pilot program for removal and replacement of Ash trees on private property that are infected by the Emerald Ash Borer. Program details and applications for first-come, first-served cost-share funding are available on the South Nation Conservancy site.

Note that this program is not for trees on the city’s roadway allowance, which are instead handled by the city directly; more information on the city’s overall response to the Emerald Ash Borer is available on its site.
