STOP Dutch Elm Disease

Provincial Regulations prohibit pruning elm trees from April 1 to August 31 each year.  Fresh wounds attract elm bark beetles which increases the likelihood of infection, especially during this time of year when the beetles are most active. 

In Saskatchewan, it is illegal to transport, store or buy elm firewood.
