Many Ontario municipalities are spending large portions of their budgets dealing with the ash borer issue.  

In London, 1,000 ash trees received a stay on a removal order, while council investigates Oakville’s program of injecting TreeAzin into ash trees. Oakville injects 40 per cent of its trees, while London only injects four per cent of its trees.

A London group felt that killing 96 per cent of its ash population would devalue private properties by $20 million across the city.
