Protect your Ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer!
Can anything be done to save the Ash trees of the Kawarthas? Yes. Although Emerald Ash Borer has been confirmed in the Kawartha Lakes, it is not too late to start protecting your Ash trees before these infestations grow.
Funding Available to Peterborough Residents
TreeCanada and sponsors U-HAUL and Telus have partnered with The City of Peterborough to offer a subsidy to approved home and property owners who wish to treat their ash trees against the Emerald Ash Borer. The initiative will offer owners of private ash trees a subsidy of up to $3.00 per centimetre of trunk diameter to treat with TreeAzin biopesticide against the Emerald Ash Borer. The scheme will run in two phases, the first will be for owners of up to 5 ash trees until 1 July 2015 and if the funds are not used up, will extend to owners of 6 or more ash trees until late August or until the funds are used up, whichever is first.
