In the small area around the park, ten trees were marked to be removed, and another three were marked with a green painted dot and a metal tag. We decided that this meant that these trees were being treated with something to kill the Emerald Ash Borer. It's sad to see that so many trees are being affected, but it's good to know that the city is taking steps to help us keep our treed areas. After returning back to the school, we checked out the city website and found some great information at the following link - http://ottawa.ca/sites/ottawa.ca/files/eab_strategy_en.pdf. Check it out to find out more about this issue.
