Due to Ash trees that have been affected by Emerald Ash Borer, the woodlot behind Bulmer Crescent will be closed from February 13, 2017 until approximately March 31, 2017 to remove the Ash Trees.
Please note that the area is not safe for public use during the removal process.
The trees are in the Woodlot behind the homes on Bulmer Cres that are
within striking distance of private property that will or have succumbed to
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). The trees will be removed over the course of the
winter and the area will be monitored for two years at which time smaller trees
may be planted if natural rejuvenation is not taking place. It is important to
remove dead and dying trees that could contact private property, to avoid
property damage and possible injury to residents.
About the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a metallic green wood-boring beetle of about 1 to 1.5 cm in length that attacks all native species of ash trees, typically killing them in two to three years. Its larvae bore tunnels under the bark to feed on inner bark tissue. The tunnels cut the flow of nutrients and water to leaves, causing the tree to die. For more information about the EAB, visit the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) website at:inspection.gc.ca
