Title: Emerald Ash Borer and the damge it causes

By: A. Pasma, 2014-03-14 14:53:43

I just wanted to throw this picture up so you all can see what the damage to Ash tree on the inside actually looks like. Its pretty incredible. I will continue with Invasive species on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone.

Title: Invasive Species to watch for this summer

By: A. Pasma, 2014-03-13 11:09:54

Over the next few days I will update you on invasive species to watch for this Summer. The first is probably familiar to most of you, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) While there has been talk that the deep freeze we went through this winter may have put an end to the EAB, there is no evidence of this at this time. The Emerald Ash Borer lay their eggs in the bark of Ash trees in early summer. When the larvae hatch, they chew through the outer bark, and feed on the inner bark. They create tunnels in the inner bark which can interrupt the flow of water and nutrients in the tree. An infested tree can be killed in months. There is a product, TreeAzin that can be injected into your Ash tree in an effort to ward of the EAB. If you treat your tree in time, and on schedule, you should be able to keep your Ash tree for the duration of its natural life. Contact us for more information if you are concerned you have an Ash tree on your property, and you live in the Oakville, Burlington, or Mississauga areas.

Title: Bill 167 - The Invasive Species Act

By: A. Pasma, 2014-03-05 10:07:38

There was an interesting article in the Mississauga news today regarding the potential of a new provincial law, known as Bill 167, that would help the province in the fight against invasive species. Currently there are multiple different invasive species doing a large amount of damage to our native plants and trees. The passing of this new law would allow for harsher punishments and fines, and more restrictions would be applied on bringing any invasive specie into the province. Have a look at the article below for more information: http://www.mississauga.com/news-story/4395240-can-new-bill-help-city-fight-alien-invaders-/

Title: Time is running out for EAB treatment

By: A. Pasma, 2013-08-21 16:47:00

Just a reminder to all of our customers and fellow tree lovers. The deadline to have your Ash tree treated with TreeAzin to help defend against the Emerald Ash Borer is August 31st. Don't wait until next year if you can avoid it. One treatment provides two years protection.

There was a great turnout at the Tour de Trees last week. Have a look at the link below to see how Oakville participated in the event. http://www.insidehalton.com/news-story/4022330-it-s-all-about-trees/

Title: Keep your home cool the Green Way

By: A. Pasma, 2013-08-06 11:15:21

I recently came across an excellent article from Oakville Today outlining the benefits of shade trees. Did you know that Shade trees can drop temperatures on a property by several degrees, reducing dependency on air conditioners? The article also provided a great list of trees that are best for providing shade. Some examples are the Silver Maple, Little Leaf Linden, White Oak, Virginia Pine, Chinese Elm, American Beech, Autumn Blaze Maple and the Bald Cypress.

Title: Emerald Ash Borer in Oakville

By: A. Pasma, 2013-07-26 10:37:33

There was a good article in the Oakville Beaver discussing the affects EAB has on residents wallets. As a company that consistently removes Ash trees in the Oakville area, I can offer a little advice to keep the cost down. If you notice your tree is beginning to look like its dying, contact a tree removal company, like us, right away. The cost tends to go up when removing an extremely dead tree, as they are most hazardous. If you are considering treating your Ash tree, don't delay, there is only a small window of time where the treatment is effective. If you would like to take a look at the article, here is a link: http://www.insidehalton.com/news-story/3907513-emerald-ash-borer-digs-into-wallets/
