The Township of Scugog's Public Works department is responsible for maintaining all municipal trees, including:
If a tree on your boulevard is dead or diseased, email us or call 905-985-7346 ext. 112. Our staff will come and look at the tree to decide if it should be removed and/or replaced.
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive pest that attacks and kills ash trees in North America. EAB has spread throughout the Township of Scugog since 2009. We expect this infestation to expand to the Township's street ash trees in Port Perry.
We recommend removing heavily infested trees (when more than a third of the crown has died off) for safety reasons and to prevent EAB from spreading. Depending on available resources, the Township removes infested trees all at once or in three stages:
Replacement trees may not be planted at the same time we remove an infested tree.
