Get involved in Tree Check Month across Canada this August
August 8, 2021

August marks Tree Check Month, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) encourages everyone in Canada to join plant health enthusiasts from coast to coast to coast who will be participating.

It is peak season for adult wood-boring insects to be spotted outside of trees, and their impacts are most obvious in the summer.

Invasive pests like the emerald ash borer, LDD moth (Lymantria dispar dispar) and hemlock woolly adelgid are serious threats to Canada's economy, environment and society.

Take a quick trip outside to inspect the trees in your yard or in and around your community for unusual or sudden changes in tree health, including discolouration, bark cracks, insect holes, eggs and tunnels! Use the hashtag #TreeCheckMonth when reporting your actions and in your conversations on social media
