The City of Saskatoon (City) reminds residents that the provincial ban on pruning elm trees will be in effect between April 1 and August 31, 2015.

The ban ensures that elm bark beetles, which transmit dutch elm disease (DED), are not attracted to the freshly pruned trees when these beetles are most active.  Anyone wishing to prune elm trees during the ban must obtain a permit.  Please call City of Saskatoon Parks Division at 306-975-3300 for information.
