Ash and hazard tree open house
November 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The City of Guelph is hosting an open house to present plans for tree removal in City-owned woodlands, including:
- Ellis Creek Wetland
- Mitchell Woods Park
- Marksam Park
- Margaret Greene Park
- Hadati Creek (Watson Parkway N to York Road)
- Ridgeway Greenway (Arkell Road to Jenson Boulevard)
- Westminister Woods
Work includes cutting down dead and dying ash trees in City-owned woodlands as part of the City’s Emerald Ash Borer Plan. Tree removal will begin on or about November 19, 2018 and continue into spring 2019, with any remaining trees removed in fall of 2019. Impacted trees are already marked with an orange “X”.
Why come to the open house?
The appearance and character of City woodlands may be significantly impacted where large numbers of trees are being removed.
Woodlands, trails, roads and sidewalks will temporarily close during the work, limiting access to trails, parks and natural areas.
The City will also remove invasive buckthorn in the same areas using herbicide treatment to create the best opportunity for natural regeneration and/or replanting and restoration efforts.
This is your opportunity to view project information, including maps and schedules, and to ask questions about potential impacts to the City’s woodlands and residential properties. Residents are encouraged to provide comments and feedback to City staff at the open house.
The City of Guelph appreciates your patience and understanding as we complete this important project. For more information about this project, including updates, please visit guelph.ca/hazardtrees.
