Business Review, after reviewing top local arboriculture sources, lists Rooted Tree Services as a leading source of EAB information affecting GTA communities and today announces the company's advisement to private residents of municipal Ash tree removal by-laws in wake of Toronto's removal plans announcement. GTA residents can find more information from an article published on the city's website, (,) posted July 1, 2013.

Infested Ash trees located on the portion of a homeowner`s property close to the street are known as “street trees” and are attributed to being a part of municipal property. These trees will be removed and replaced by the municipality at no cost to the homeowner. Backyard trees are private, as are trees on front lawns outside the street right-of-way. If an infested tree is privately owned, the homeowner is 100 per cent responsible for the removal costs of that tree since there are no city subsidies set in place to cover the cost of removal. "A tree infested by the EAB has a 100 per cent mortality rate and will begin to die within 2-6 months of infestation. If you are in need of a GTA tree removal company, Rooted Tree Services will be more than happy to inspect your suspected infested tree and provide you with a removal quote free of charge,” says Peter Crawford of Rooted Tree Services. “We will also obtain all the necessary municipality by-law permits to ensure that you are in compliance with all tree removal regulations and laws within your community.”

If you suspect you may have an Ash tree infested with the EAB, first determine if the tree is a City-owned or privately owned tree. If you are unsure of ownership, call 3-1-1. Homeowners will be notified of tree removal and replacement planting by receiving a “Notice of Tree Removal and Replacement Planting” card. There are many streets within the infestation area that have Ash trees not yet showing signs of advanced decline. These trees are prioritized for removal next year.
