Notification of Ecological Restoration work at Cawthra Woods

By October 5, 2023Events, Issues, Ward 1

Please be advised that contractors working on behalf of the City of Mississauga are forecasted to perform invasive plant removals starting the week of November 27, 2023 at Cawthra Woods. It is anticipated the work will take about two weeks to complete. All work is weather dependent and may extend into the following weeks as necessary.

Non-native woody invasive plants will receive herbicide treatments. The herbicide that will be used for non-native woody invasive species is called Garlon (active ingredient: Triclopyr). Non-native woody invasive shrubs will be cut down and herbicide will be directly applied to the cut stumps. As per provincial regulations, a notice of upcoming herbicide application will be posted on-site at least 24 hours in advance of the work and will remain at least 48 hours afterwards.

Residents, 311, and the parks supervisor will also be notified of the work.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 3-1-1 (or 905-615-4311 from outside Mississauga).
