Elm tree pruning ban in effect!

Provincial regulations prohibit pruning elm trees from April 1 – August 31 each year to reduce the spread of Dutch Elm Disease. If you notice any signs of Dutch Elm Disease, please report it to the Town Office.

Some signs to look for to detect Dutch Elm Disease:

– Leaves on one or more branches suddenly wilt, droop and curl.
– Leaves turn yellow, then brown and shrivel, but stay on the tree; this is referred to as flagging’.
– DED symptoms can also be seen under the bark of infected branches. When the bark is peeled back, healthy elm wood is cream coloured. But when a tree is diseased, dark brown or red streaks can be seen in the infected sample.
– DED advances quickly and the affected branch will die as more of the tree becomes infected. You might see dead leaves falling out of season.
– If the tree is infected later in the summer, the leaves on the infected branch or branches will droop, turn yellow and drop prematurely. Late season infections are easily confused with normal seasonal changes in leaf color.
