May 10, 2019 – Montreal residents with ash trees on their property can take advantage of a limited time program to have their trees treated for free against the invasive emerald ash borer. The free offer expires July 31. Last year the city covered two-thirds of the treatment costs, but figures making it entirely free is more cost effective.
