Thousands of ash trees infested by the tiny but destructive emerald ash borer will be cut down in Mount Royal Park by March 2019.
There are more than 10,000 ash trees in the park, and two-thirds have been treated against the invasive bug.  The rest are getting axed.
“We’ll remove dead trees and plant 40,000 small trees, 50 per cent of which will grow,” said Luc Ferrandez, the executive committee member in charge of parks and the environment.
