Hi Everyone!

Please mark Monday, May 13th in your calendar!

All FCA members and the public are invited to attend an expert panel discussion on the Emerald Ash Borer beetle in Ottawa. The panel will feature Joe Meating from BioForest, Sean Barker from TreeFeed.ca and Bruce Gill from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Dr. Curtis Lavoie from CHEO will be joining the panel to comment on the health benefits of trees and what this epidemic will mean to the future health of Ottawa residents. The public will have the opportunity to ask questions afterwards.

Attendees will also have a chance to speak 1-on-1 with tree experts before the panel discussion begins. This is a perfect time for residents to discuss their individual situations regarding Ash trees on their property, and the process and costs of having their trees treated.

Note – If anyone has any doubts that the Emerald Ash Borer will inevitably cause the loss of at least 20% of the urban tree canopy over the next 3 to 5 years, please read Mark Cullen’s recent article in the Citizen – “Kiss your ash goodbye”

All attendees will be entered into a draw for a FREE TreeAzin treatment from TreeFeed.ca.

Please help us spread the word by sharing this invitation with anyone you think may be interested!
Please see event flyer for more information (attached).
Hope to see you there!
