Emerald Ash Forest explores the city’s landscape of amputated trees affected by the Emerald Ash Borer, a shiny emerald beetle that kills ash trees by disrupting their flow of nutrients and water. The project seeks to start a conversation with the public about Toronto’s urban forest and the threats posed by invasive species.
