Where have all the ash trees gone?

Since 2010, the Township of Huron-Kinloss has been monitoring the Emerald Ash Borer migration and the affect the bug has on our ash trees. First signs of the Emerald Ash Borer were discovered in Lucknow in 2010, followed by Ripley and Point Clark in 2011.

The Township of Huron-Kinloss is attempting to act proactively to ensure the Emerald Ash Borer and the affected ash trees do not cause any damage to adjacent properties or create an unsafe environment for residents.

The Community Services Department is using the Have Your Say HK website to keep residents informed and updated with the project progress, ongoing details, and any changes. Have Your Say HK will provide a platform for any concerns with the project to be heard, and ask questions.

The tree removal at Deer Run Nature Trail is in progress this week. We fully understand why this is necessary however the impact of this has been very unpleasant. The work was to be performed on Concession 2, but that changed and all the work is done on Ash St. Machines driving on our lawn & driveway, logs being dragged down the street, cutting and then piling on our lawn and others. No one was notified this would happen and had we been we would have taken action to prevent wood being piled on our lawn. After communication with Savage and the township the reason for the change was safety due to traffic on Concession 2. May I suggest that all future work address the impact on home owners and the township deal with any possible safety issues. Concession 2 should be blocked off until work is completed as per contract.

The Emerald Ash are being cut down along Boiler Beach Rd. but, so are other trees like Maples and Evergreens why? The branches are all over the trails and paths and we hope this will be cleaned up. We live on Heritage Dr. and our park the Emerald Ash were all taken down along with other tree species over a year ago and still no cleanup. Matter -of-fact it is now being used to dump yard wastage.

I hope HK is going to do some tree planting next spring to replace some of the trees that have been cut down along Boiler Beach Rd. It is especially noticeable at the bottom of the 10th by the mail boxes. What species will you replant? Gillian Norton

I have used Lands and Forest Consulting since 2011 to treat my ash trees on Boiler Beach Road with a pesticide to protect them. The treatment costs $200 per tree and has to be done every two years. I started just before it hit our area.It may be too late now to start treating the remaining ash trees but Lands and Forest can check your tree out and advise you accordingly.Please call me at 416-698-1578 if you need more info from me.
