Marth Barwinsky, City Forester
Since the 2002 discovery of emerald ash borer (EAB) in North America, millions of hectares of ash trees have been decimated in the United States, Ontario and Quebec. EAB poses a significant threat to Winnipeg’s urban forest and will result in a substantial change to our urban forest cover. Winnipeg is home to over 350,000 ash trees and over 30% of the city’s public urban canopy is comprised of ash. Learn what you need to know about EAB, how the City of Winnipeg will respond to the new presence of EAB, and what can be done to slow the mortality of the city’s ash population.
