The city is removing what will likely be thousands ash trees from three areas in north Kanata.

Work to remove dead and dying ash trees in the Beaverpond Park area, a woodlot and recreation trail off Marconi Avenue and a forested area in Kimmins Court Park had begun by Feb. 13.

Replanting efforts are set to begin in the spring.Sections within all three affected areas will see more than 90 per cent of trees removed after being infected by the emerald ash borer, said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson at a town hall meeting on Feb. 13.
