Let’s talk garbage!

More Felling Operations to Control the Emerald Ash Borer

Even in winter, the emerald ash borer remains a matter of concern. Just as the snow season is off to a start, the City of Montréal is undertaking felling operations in several large parks across Montréal, including Mount Royal. Operations aim to ensure the safety of visitors and limit the propagation of this insect pest. In all cases, efforts will be made to reduce the impact on park users.
