The first time the Emerald Ash-borer was detected in Toronto near
Highway 404 and Sheppard Ave East.
Since than the City has done very little to protect our trees in Guildwood under Mayor Miller. Last year, I noticed some trees belonging to the City of Toronto, being injected with BioForest's TreeAzin bio insecticide. The success rate treading trees with TreeAzin according to the company BioForest is excellent. http://www.bioforest.ca/
Why did the City of Toronto wait so long to protect our trees?
Now, after the clear cutting has taken place, it will take at least 25 years
to grow mature trees again.
In the meantime the impact on our environment
will be felt for many years to come. Wildlife, especially migrating birds, wildflowers and insects will be compromised.
The Scarborough Bluffs will be even more destabilized
by more runoffs from aquifers.
Stormy weather will topple the last standing trees.
"For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious
than if it were made of gold and silver."- Martin Luther
