Tangle of branches take clean-up efforts

Hundreds of trees surrounding Fairy Lake in Southampton (Saugeen Shores) were  identified as hazardous due to an Emerald Ash Borer infestation and are now almost completely removed.

The removal began February 6th and what was expected to take six week, is almost near completion.

Clean up of brush is time consuming

Ontario Line Clearing and Tree Experts was the company chosen to undertake the project and it is anticipated that  reforestation will take place as soon as possible, weather permitting.

The company is on the last stage of removal on the east shore of Fairy Lake.  "We've been very careful," said a company representative,"and have had close observation by Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority with all the trees to be removed painted with a specific colour."

The first stage was the removal of marked ash trees and the second phase will include rehabilitation of the trail around the lake, the replacement of two pedestrian bridges, the installation of an additional water fountain and a lookout.
