Help Prevent Dutch Elm Disease

Dutch Elm Disease

The annual elm pruning ban in Alberta is over until March 31, 2018.

Dutch elm disease is caused by a fungus that clogs the elm tree’s water conducting system. The fungus is primarily spread from one tree to another by elm bark beetles, which are inactive over the winter months. Now is the time to prune out dead branches and trees as they can provide beetle habitat.

Properly dispose of all elm wood at a landfill, or by burying or burning the material. It is illegal to store or transport elm firewood.
