Learn about tree removals in our woodlands

Oakville is a municipal leader in Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) management. The town continues to treat 75 per cent of the ash tree canopy on streets and in active parks to help protect the trees from the damaging effects of EAB.

Unfortunately, EAB has damaged most of the ash trees in the town's woodlands. These trees are now dead or dying and present a potential safety hazard to adjacent properties and to people using the trails.

This summer or fall, as soon as weather and ground conditions permit, the town’s contractor will begin to remove trees from 22 of the town’s woodlands for public safety, as part of a 10-year Woodlands Hazardous Abatement program.

Join us at the Community Open House and talk to the experts. Discover how EAB has affected your woodland and learn about its future restoration.

For more information and a list of properties in this year’s program, contact ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601 or service@oakville.ca or visit the EAB page.
