Two weeks ago in my column, I shared some information regarding tree trimming on Abbott Street from East of Stittsville Main St to West of Granite Ridge Dr. There are two reasons for this work.
Last week Hydro Ottawa began trimming trees to maintain the required safety and operating clearances of the proposed overhead lines.
Additional to this work, there are Ash trees (approximately 20%) mixed in the bunch which have fallen victim to the Emerald Ash Borer. As a result, these trees will be removed completely in this process.
In regards to the Hydro work, there will be an Open House and information session occurring sometime in mid-late June by Hydro Ottawa. Once the date is confirmed By Hydro I will come back to the community with that information. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any additional questions at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca.
