EMERALD ASH BORER:  In Spring 2013 City Forestry staff and contractors began implementing the City’s 10-year Emerald Ash Borer Management Plan to preserve 20,000 select City-owned ash trees from the effects of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)

There was a public information session in Port Credit (April 22, 2013) where residents were invited to learn more and to speak directly with Forestry staff about EAB, including the City’s action plan to manage EAB, the long term effect of EAB, available treatment (TreeAzin/BioForest), woodlot management and what residents can do to preserve ash trees located on private property.

NOTE: The City of Mississauga will not be treating Ash trees located on private property and the Forestry Section encourages residents to continually inspect their Ash trees and contact a certified arborist if they suspect EAB on their property.

SNUG HARBOUR IMPROVEMENTS:  Many don't know that the Snug Harbour restaurant at the Port Credit harbour is a tenant of the City.  The facility is being renovated and a new lease is in place, further to last year's Council directive (April 13, 2011 - Minutes, p5-6).  Minutes for the most recent Council meeting on this subject are not yet posted.

The Port Credit Salmon and Trout Association is contemplating a live webcam on the chimney (photo) of the restaurant so that real-time harbour conditions can be seen by PC fans around the world as well as local boaters; the City may be placing a webcam on the Lighthouse so that events at Memorial Park can be seen!
