Good afternoon,

As part of its emerald ash borer management strategy, the National Capital Commission (NCC) wishes to inform you that a safety advisory was issued in order to advise the public that hundreds of dead or dying ash trees will be removed at a number of locations in Ottawa’s west side, including Fisher Avenue near Shillington Avenue, along the Ottawa River recreational pathway and along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway. Removal of these ash trees will start on Monday, December 8, and continuing through the month. Notwithstanding our efforts to save these trees, some are infected by the Emerald Ash Borer and need to be removed for public safety reasons.

For more information, please refer to the safety advisory.

Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact NCC Client Services at 613-239-5000 or

We invite you to share this message with your community association members.

Dans le cadre de sa stratégie de gestion de l’agrile du frêne, la Commission de la capitale nationale (CCN) souhaite vous informez qu’un avis de sécurité a été émis pour informer le public que des centaines de frênes morts ou malades seront abattus à différents endroits du secteur ouest d’Ottawa, notamment sur l’avenue Fisher près de l’avenue Shillington, et le long du sentier récréatif de la rivière des Outaouais et de la promenade de Sir-John-A.-Macdonald. Ces travaux débuteront le lundi 8 décembre et se poursuivront au cours de la nouvelle année.

Emerald Ash Borer Discussion – May 13

Sent: 30/04/2013 7:11:24 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time
Subj: Fwd: Mark the date: May 13th – EAB expert panel discussion

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 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

You’re invited to the FCA’s Emerald Ash Borer forum

Associated email for more details:

Dear Ottawa-area Community Associations,

The  devastation to Ottawa’s ash trees by the Emerald  Ash Borer <;menuid=34&amp;pageid=1062>  (EAB) is and will continue to have a tremendous impact on our  City for many years to come. Ash trees make up 35% of Ottawa’s tree canopy so  the threat of losing the majority of these majestic trees is also a threat to  Ottawa’s tree canopy as a whole.

To better inform residents and  Ottawa-area community associations about what they can do to help protect  their communities and save as many ash trees as possible, the Federation of  Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa is hosting a public forum and panel  discussion on the Emerald Ash Borer Tuesday, October 9th at the Overbrook  Community Centre, 33 Quill Street <> .

We’ve gathered all the key  players who were engaged on the ground fighting the Emerald Ash Borer this  summer in Ottawa. They know the extent of the infestation and the threat it  poses to Ottawa’s urban forest. Come hear directly from the people who know  the facts and can tell us what we can do to minimize the impact of the Emerald  Ash Borer in our communities.

The forum begins at 6 pm with a Meet  & Greet with industry professionals. Ottawa area tree service providers  and City officials will be on hand to speak to the public. If you or someone  you know has an Ash tree on their property, this is the time to come because  you will have a chance to speak 1-on-1 to these experts about your situation.  At 7 pm, the expert panel discussion will begin. The FCA will pose four  questions to the panelists designed to help flesh out the complexities of this  issue. After a short break, we’ll open up the discussion to questions from the  floor.

This is an excellent opportunity to become better informed so  you can help inform the residents living in your community, so please join us  at 6 pm on Tuesday, October 9th at the Overbrook  Community Centre, 33 Quill Street <> .

PS: Please help us spread the  word about this important event by sharing it with your residents online and  through email. I have attached the event poster which can also be downloaded  from our site at:

We look forward to seeing you there!
