NDG Property owners with ash trees on their property can now benefit from financial aid from the City of Montreal to cut down and replace their ash trees destroyed by the emerald ash-borer.

On August 21st, the City of Montreal adopted a by-law that offers subsidies for cutting down trees with a maximum diameter of
5cm. The subsidy cannot exceed the cutting fees, or $4000 per property. Property owners who would like to take advantage of
this offer must apply for funding, and indicate that they would like to be considered for the tree planting program. The request for funding must be done once the tree has been cut down.

To learn more about the program,or to fill in a subsidy request, please visit the city’s website :
