What You Can Do

Residents play a significant role in helping control Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) by not moving firewood and monitoring ash trees for evidence of EAB activity. For more information on how to identify the signs and symptoms of EAB, visit the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website or refer to the Canadian Forest Service A Visual Guide to Detecting Emerald Ash Borer Damage (PDF).

For residents worried about their declining ash tree, please consult the What You Need to Know About the Management of the Emerald Ash Borer – Guidelines for hiring tree care services to manage urban trees (PDF).
