Two confirmed cases of Dutch elm disease in Regina
Two cases of Dutch elm disease (DED) have been confirmed in the City, one on Regina Avenue and one on Grey Street. Due to the location of the diseased trees and the risk to other trees, both trees have already been removed.
Due to provincial regulation and to minimize the risk of spreading DED throughout our city, pruning of elm trees is prohibited from April 1 to August 31. To date, with the help of residents, the City of Regina has only lost 72 trees to DED in the past 31 years.
Residents with concerns about Dutch elm disease are asked to contact Service Regina at 777-7000.
