Deer Run Nature Trail

Closed for ash tree removal

           The Deer Run Nature Trail Ash Tree Project is a result of the Emerald AshBorer infestation which has caused the death of thousands of as trees in Huron-Kinloss. The Township of Huron-Kinloss has now authorized Savage Bros. Ltd as the contractor to remove over 160 ash trees. All wood over 5 inches in diameter will be removed with some remaining top branches being shredded by another contracting company. 

The trees are being removed due to safety concerns regarding falling trees or tree limbs. A number of high risk trees will be removed immediately, and the balance of the removal work will be completed by September 1st, 2019. During this time the Deer Run Nature Trail will be closed to the public. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

The Township will be completing a tree planting program in the Deer Run Nature Trail either in the fall of 2019 of the Spring of 2020. 

In order to keep residents informed of the progress of the project, we have established a communications website called "Have Your Say HK." 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience. 


The Township of Huron-Kinloss publishes a newsletter twice a year, which is then distributed to residents with their tax bill(s). Please see the right side for our most recent newsletters.
