A stack of freshly-sawed ash wood awaits transformation into benches or other structures for the Plains of Abraham park. Branches and bark, whatever is not needed for research, is chipped and safely disposed of to prevent the spread of the dreaded emerald ash borer.

The destructive emerald ash borer (agrile du frĂȘne in French) menace will produce some good. Most of the dozens of affected trees taken down recently on the Plains of Abraham will be sawed and turned into lumber for benches and other structures in the park.
