Ottawa property owners with trees killed by the emerald ash borer may be eligible for up to $500 per tree in subsidized removal and replacement costs.
The South Nation Conservation Authority and the City of Ottawa have partnered to make the offer on a first-come, first-served basis. It covers 50 per cent of the cost of removal and replanting, up to the $500 limit. There’s a limit of $5,000 (10 trees) per landowner.
A certified arborist or registered forester must do the work, and the tree must be a victim of the ash borer in order to qualify for removal.https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/city-offers-500-subsidy-to-remove-and-replace-trees-killed-by-ash-borer
