Greenspace Latest News

Fantastic news:  at least eight (update: 20!) of Trinity Bellwoods Park's 94 ash trees (Fraxinus) have been marked for possible innoculation against the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) which is devastating Ontario's ash trees.

Ash trees selected for treatment are marked with bright green labels

We're told that some of those marked, but not necessarily all (budget will dictate), will be injected with TreeAzin™ later this summer or early next.  The newly funded EAB unit at Parks is currently innoculating in more at-risk areas of the city.  TreeAzin™ is a Systemic Insecticide produced from extracts of Neem Tree seeds (Azadiracta indica), (but is not neem oil) which has been 95% successfull in making ash trees unattractive to the bug and therefore safe.  Each tree needs to be innoculated every two years until and if the EAB abates so it's abit of a time and $ commitment.

ADOPT-A-TREE PROGRAM GEARING UP FOR 2012 SEASON
Looking for a way to give-back to our wonderful neighborhood park?   FoTBP's AAT program is always looking for new adopters as existing adopters move out of the neighborhood and/or the park is the beneficiary of newly planted trees.  Use the website contact form at or email AAT coordinator Michaelle at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Have a look at our google map -- the red "volcano" icons denote trees in need of adopters.

It's almost here -- our annual, group love-in of our wonderful 37 acres of green space!  Come spend a few hours gardening and planting and helping to care for the park, or drop by for a shorter time to lend a hand or sign up to water a tree this summer.

Slowly but surely we shall overcome that rampant burdock and its dog-hair mangling habits....!  Thanks to all that came out and cut and dug burdock today.

One such person had the useful thought that carrying a pair of garden pruners in your pocket and hacking a few burdock plants down every day while Fido cavorts would be long-term helpful.....
