Bristol Oaks Tree Replacement

Project Description

This winter, a Sturgeon County contractor will be removing boulevard Cherry trees infected with black knot disease in the Bristol Oaks community. This is necessary to limit the spread of the disease and protect healthy trees.

Residents will have an opportunity to select their top three preferred replacement trees from a list supplied by the County. Resident preferences will be factored in alongside supplier availability and the County’s targets to enhance boulevard tree biodiversity in the subdivision.

Please review the tree options below and complete the form or email your three preferred choices to agricultureservices@sturgeoncounty.ca. If we don’t receive a preference from your residents by January 29, 2024, we will assign a tree from the list based on our biodiversity goals for your community as well as supplier availability.

If you have any questions, please call 780-939-8349, or email agricultureservices@sturgeoncounty.ca

American Elm

A hardy, fast-growing, dense, and vase shaped tree. Gorgeous arching branches. Cultivars chosen for boulevards have a narrower form, suitable for a more compact space.

Green Ash

One of the best general purpose shade trees for cold climates. Extremely hardy tree with a symmetrical, round shape and glossy dark green foliage throughout the season, turning to a brilliant yellow in fall. One of the last trees to leaf out in the spring and one of the first to lose its leaves in the fall.  

Spring Snow Crab Apple

A hardy hybrid fruitless variety with a tightly oval habit of growth. Very clean and tidy. Highly recommended for smaller residential yards. Blanketed in showy white spring flowers. Has dark green foliage throughout the season turning to yellow in the fall. 

Silver Maple

Pyramidal oval shaped maple with a uniform branching habit. Classic maple lobed leaves with beautiful powdery silver bark. High branching tree starting at about 2 metres from the ground. Turning yellow or red in the fall depending on the cultivar.
