    Description

    Oakville is an urban municipality with 846 ha of woodland. Management priorities are to maintain forest health, environmental health, and safety; wood production is a minor objective. The town developed a comprehensive strategy to plan for emerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis) induced ash mortality and forest restoration. Oakville has begun implementing its forest management program focusing on removing and salvaging dead and dying ash from its woodlands and supporting forest regeneration. This management plan is described in this paper along with some of the challenges of its implementation.
