Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Newmarket is giving away a limited number of burlap kits to residents this season to help combat Lymantria dispar dispar (LDD). Installing burlap bands on private and boulevard trees will act as a barrier for LDD caterpillars to travel up the tree to feed on the tree's leaves. Burlap band installation is the most effective when done in the spring as caterpillars will begin to hatch and feed from early May to mid-July.

How to receive a *free burlap kit:

  1. Head to the Magna Centre (800 Mulock Drive) Customer Service Kiosk anytime until the end of May from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to pick-up your burlap kit.
  2. Head home and install the burlap bands on your trees. Follow the installation guide, or video below for more information on how to properly install the burlap bands.

*Please note that this offer is only available for Newmarket residents / property owners.
