As part of its ongoing efforts to control the spread of EAB and to ensure the safety of citizens and infrastructures, the Service des grands parcs, du Mont-Royal et des sports (SGPMRS) of the City of Montreal will soon proceed with the felling of dying (or dead) ash trees in Angell Woods.

The work will involve ash trees located behind properties on Lakeview Boulevard. Following the felling, the SGPRMS will restore the sites by planting trees and shrubs to close the gaps where natural regeneration is insufficient.
