What’s Happening to Our Ash Trees?

If you have noticed that recently a lot of Ash trees are being cut within Wasaga Beach and Craigleith provincial parks there is a good reason this is happening.  Unfortunately these trees are being impacted by an invasive insect called Emerald Ash Borer.  Trees that have been affected are being cut down to reduce the risk of injury to park visitors and damage to buildings, roads, campsites, trails and adjacent private property.

Hiking

Of particular concern for trail users are the Wasaga Nordic trails which are presently being surveyed and cleared of dangerous trees to ensure people hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing remain safe. Please inform parks’ staff of any trees that may require immediate attention. Also to stop the spread of this invasive species do not move firewood outside of the infected area.

For more information please review the Emerald Ash Boer Information sheet attached below.
