In Rosemont, more than 8,000 ash trees (one in three) are threatened by the Emerald Ash Borer. A Tree for my Neighbourhood turns the infested trees into public pieces, such as picnic tables, benches or ice‑hockey rinks (2016).

The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is a green buprestid or jewl beetle native to Northeastern Asia that feeds on ash species. In its native range, it is typically found at low densities and does not cause significant damage to trees native to the area. Outside its native range, it is an invasive species and is highly destructive to ash trees native to Europe and North America.
