Aug. 31: Ban on Pruning Elm Trees Ends
Residents may prune their elm trees again to help keep them healthy, as Saskatchewan’s annual ban on elm tree pruning ends Aug. 31. Pruning elm trees is barred from April 1 to Aug. 31 each year to reduce the risk of Dutch elm disease. But regular pruning, when permitted, helps keep elm trees healthy and better able to resist all types of disease. And early fall is a good time for tree maintenance.
