As part of the its emerald ash borer management strategy, the NCC will be planting trees and shrubs in Leamy Lake Park and along the Voyageurs Pathway at Fournier Boulevard. A total of 1,504 trees and shrubs, of 22 different species, will be planted. Prior to planting, the NCC will undertake maintenance work to remove a number of invasive species to better ensure the survival of these trees.
Work will begin on July 22 at 8 am, and will continue until mid-September, between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm, with minimal noise impact on nearby residents. The pathway will remain open throughout the work, but users may experience temporary delays when work is being undertaken closer to the pathway.
The National Capital Commission urges pathway users to exercise caution, respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons on-site.
This work is part of the NCC invasive species management strategy and emerald ash borer management program.
