Ash Tree Replacement Pilot Program

If you are a resident of the City of Ottawa with Ash trees that have been affected by the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), you may be eligible for funding for the removal and replacement of your trees.

As part of a partnership with the City of Ottawa, South Nation Conservation is offering a new Ash Tree Replacement Pilot Program to assist landowners within the City of Ottawa affected by the EAB on private property. Landowners may be eligible to receive up to $500 in cost-share funding towards the removal and replacement of an infected Ash tree on their property, up to a maximum of $5,000 per landowner. Funding is limited to a first-come, first-serve basis and is available to all property owners within the entire City of Ottawa.

All work related to tree removal and replacement must be performed by a registered forestry professional.
