Action plan to slow the progression of the emerald ash borer

Special NoticeSaint-Bruno is Taking Action!

May 7, 2015

This summer, the Ville de Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville will do an inventory of ash trees located on private property and an inventory of our urban forest, as part of its action plan to slow the progression of the emerald ash borer.

Ash Tree Inventory - Private Property

This inventory will be conducted throughout the entire municipality to determine the number of ash trees and their location. The inventory will enable residents to know whether they have an ash tree on their property and what measures should be taken.

The inventory will be carried out by two municipal environment inspectors. They will have a business card that residents can ask to see at any time.

Visits will take place from mid-May to the end of August, every day, between 8:30 a.m. and 8:15 pm.

The environment inspectors will visit all private properties in the municipality, with the exception of woodlots. When they find an ash tree, they will leave the owner a door hanger indicating its location, as well as some information on the subject.

Information: Environment Division, 450 645-2918

Urban Forest Inventory - Municipal Property

Throughout the summer, Saint-Bruno will compile a georeferenced inventory of all trees on municipal land (with the exception of woodlots) in order to have a full tree count to date, including the condition of the trees. This inventory will also optimize management of our arboreal heritage.

The work will be carried out by the firm Tremblay et Tremblay, SENC/trame verte, from June to October 2015.

Information: 450 645-2960

Other measures

Many other measures are planned in the coming months to combat the emerald ash borer, particularly:

  • ongoing visual detection of the insect
  • the use of traps at the tops of some ash trees
  • treatment (some municipal trees may be treated with TreeAzinTM, based on certain criteria)
  • a 5-year tree removal plan (about 300 trees per year)
  • a 5-year tree replacement plan promoting biodiversity and resistant species, adapted to the conditions of the environment and available space (300 trees per year)

The town also adopted, on March 16, 2015, a by-law aimed at optimizing its measures against the spread of the emerald ash borer outside of natural environments. This by-law regulates practices such as pruning, felling and ash tree waste management on private property.

All actions taken by the Ville de Saint-Bruno are in compliance with the metropolitan emerald ash borer strategy adopted by the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM).

The emerald ash borer

Originally from Asia, the emerald ash borer was accidentally introduced into North America in the 1990s by the importing of contaminated hardwood such as pallets or crates. Because this beetle has no specific predator in our environment, its infestation has progressed rapidly.

In Québec, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed the presence of the emerald ash borer in Carignan in 2008, in Gatineau and Montreal in 2011 and in Longueuil in 2012. In June 2013, Saint-Bruno undertook steps to detect the beetle, and this confirmed the presence of the emerald ash borer in our municipality.
