City’s ash tree replacement program on now

WEST CARLETON – The City of Ottawa’s ash tree removal and replacement program is ready to help you with your tree problem.

“Do you have an ash tree on your property that might be infected with the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)?” city staff released in a statement. “Cost-share funding is available for removal and replacement of trees at $500 per tree, up to $5,000.”

Following the same format as previous years, the program is available to property owners with affected tree(s) located in the City of Ottawa. Eligible applicants agree to use a forestry professional to confirm and remove EAB infected trees and to replace all removed trees with suitable native trees.

The Ash Tree Replacement Program is managed and administered by South Nation Conservation, and funding support provided by the City of Ottawa. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the program website at
