Do you want to learn more about how you can help slow the spread of emerald ash borer, an invasive species that is killing Ottawa’s ash trees?

Please join me and City staff at an information session to learn more about what the City is doing to prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer and how you can help mitigate the impact of this insect on our ash trees. The presence of emerald ash borer poses a serious threat to 25 percent of the City’s forest cover located on both public and private properties.

The information sessions are scheduled for:
