Beaconsfield offers EAB grant to residents

“We encourage residents to take advantage of this generous subsidy that encourages homeowners to treat their ash trees and maintain Beaconsfield’s urban forest,” said Georges Bourelle.

The Beaconsfield mayor was referring to a recent grant from Tree Canada of $28,000 to combat the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) being offered to homeowners dealing with the infestation on ash trees on their yards.

Homeowners must use the grant for TreeAzin as a treatment option and is available to home and property owners who have already treated their infested ash trees prior. The application must be done by a certified technician.

“Thanks to the contribution of Tree Canada and its partners, the City of Beaconsfield is taking another step to implement its strategy of managing the Emerald Ash Borer over its territory,” Bourelle noted. “We encourage residents to take advantage of this generous subsidy that encourages homeowners to treat their ash trees and maintain Beaconsfield’s urban forest.”

Our city is no longer spared; it is important to act immediately to save the ash trees,” Bourelle noted via press release.

The city’s release also stated that the grant per homeowner “ represents 25 percent of the cost of treating each property.” The average resident is likely to save $40 for the treatment and the deadline for application is Sunday, Aug. 13.
