The city has been cutting trees infested with the pest in an effort to prevent the spread of the beetles and lessen the damage to the city's trees, according to CBC. While the trees may be dead, contractor and biologist Burt van Ingen said the beetles are starting to fly from the site, hitching rides from trucks moving in and out of the dump and a local biologist says the City of Ottawa might have inadvertently created a major environmental problem dealing with the emerald ash borer. But dealing with the trees after they have been cut has proved problematic. A pile of ash trunks, about the size of a football field and five metres high, now sits at the Trail Road landfill.
