DUTCH ELM

 The Permittee shall dispose of Dutch Elm diseased trees at the waste disposal ground according to section 10(1)(a)(ii) of The Dutch Elm Disease Regulations, 2005.

We’d like to remind you that pruning elm trees is prohibited from April 1 to August 31 under provincial regulation. This prohibition helps us minimize the risk of spreading the disease. Thanks your help.

You can also help by not bringing firewood back from ANYWHERE into Assiniboia. You may have existing piles of firewood in your yard and not know that the wood is carrying the disease. If you are uncertain that the wood you have is elm, which may be infected, call 306-642-5008 and we may help you.
