Title: Wind Damage in Oakville

By: A. Pasma, 2012-07-27 10:07:55

Take a look at the attached photo. This was a very large White Oak, that fell over yesterday afternoon, at the Cinemas on Speers Rd. The Oak was suffering from shoestring root rot. The roots literally rot away, and the tree has nothing to hold it in place.

Title: Mississauga Tree Permit By-law

By: A. Pasma, 2012-07-25 09:31:26

Hello Mississauga residents. As most of you know, there has been an effort made to tighten the restrictions and costs of tree removal in Mississauga. As of yet, there have been no decisions made, but the final set of recommendations will be presented to council in the fall. In the meantime, you as a resident, still have the opportunity to have your say in this matter. Check out the City of Mississauga's website for more information.

Title: Help Stop the spread of Pests and Diseases

By: A. Pasma, 2012-07-23 11:23:34

As most people are aware, the effects of the Emerald Ash Borer have had a devastating affect on the trees in our area of Southern Ontario. You can help stop the spread of this insect and other insects and diseases by keeping all wood in its area of origin. This means that transporting firewood from City to City is not a good idea, and in fact is regulated by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR). For more information, check out the link below, or contact the MNR before moving any wood out of its original region. http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/en/Business/Forests/2ColumnSubPage/STEL02_167014.html

Title: Diseases- Amendment

By: A. Pasma, 2012-07-20 09:40:53

If you read the most recent post on diseases affecting trees in Ontario, you might have noticed it was a little dated, and therefore missing one major disease most of us are familiar with now. The Emerald Ash Borer. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive insect from Asia. The larvae eat the soft wood under the trees bark, preventing the tree from moving water and nutrients from its roots to its leaves, thus killing the tree in one to three years. The only treatment available is a preventative treatment, where the trees are injected with TreeAzin, a biological insecticide. If you have an Ash tree on your property, take action now, before it is too late, as this invasive insect has already done far too much damage to our trees in southern Ontario.

Title: Don't forget to water your trees

By: A. Pasma, 2012-07-17 08:51:22

We have had a record breaking hot dry summer thus far, and it seems it is only going to continue. When you are out in the garden watering your plants, don't forget to water your trees as well. Trees continue to grow despite the drought, and can become stressed without enough water. The Town of Oakville has asked all residents to water the trees on their property, and the adjeacent property, as seen in the article below. We are asking everyone to follow their advice as it is important to keep our trees healthy and strong. http://www.insidehalton.com/community/OAKVILLEBEAVER/article/1400746

Title: Trying to decide what type of tree to Plant?

By: A. Pasma, 2012-07-16 13:37:35

It can be a tough decision when choosing which type of tree to plant on your property. Each species of tree has different requirements from their environment to grow healthy and strong. Have a look at the Tree Atlas on the link below, found on the Ministry of Natural Resources website. It is very helpful to know which species of trees will thrive in your area. http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/en/Business/ClimateChange/2ColumnSubPage/STDPROD_085782.html?region=nativeSpecies

Attached is a pciture of what to expect when a large crane is involved in tree removal. We will be adding additional pictures to the site soon. Using a crane is an efficient and safe way to remove trees when access is minimal.
