The city has to cut down trees infested with emerald ash borer beetles.
The City of Montreal is devoting $18 million to fight the spread of the emerald ash borer and to plant new trees.
"We're winning the war," said Réal Ménard, the city's executive committee member in charge of sustainable development.
It's not the first time that Montreal has taken measures to the fight the beetle that infests ash trees and eats them from the inside.
The city has provided over $15 million over a three-year period to combat the infestation and plant new trees to replace the infested trees it had to cut down.
