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.

Ash Tree Project Questions

  • Some of the trees have big blue marks on them along Boiler Beach Road. Can you tell me what that means?

    tharvey asked 8 months ago

    The trees along Boiler Beach road, and Concession 10 slope that have the blue marks have been identified by Hydro One as a tree that will require trimming due to the proximity of a Hydro Line.

  • We have 4 trees currently effected by the asfh borer and are currently dying. Will these trees be removed under this plan

    Ring27 asked 11 months ago

    Are these trees on your property? If trees are on your property then no, they are the responsibilityy of the property owner. If you are not sure if the tree is on Municipal property or your own property, then please don't hesitate to contact Public Works, or Community Services.

  • Are hazardous trees already marked or is it to be determined by Savage at the moment of cutting nearby ash trees on the beach side?

    Sailors asked 12 months ago

    Savage Bros remove hazard trees at the moment of cutting nearby Ash trees. These trees are not marked. However please note that Hydro One has marked trees along Boiler Beach for trimming, and or removal over the next few months.
