The City of Ottawa lost a significant portion of its tree population to the emerald ash borer infestation, including over 3,000 trees on OCH properties. Thanks to the efforts of tenants, staff, and volunteers, 150 trees were planted in 2014. The trees included:

  • Amur maple
  • Honey locust
  • Crab apple
  • Cherry
  • Pear
  • Japanese lilac
  • Gingko

These trees beautify Ottawa communities, shade children’s areas, and create a habitat for birds.
