Confirmed cases of Dutch elm disease in Regina
Regina has four confirmed cases of Dutch elm disease reported for 2020.
The diseased trees, located on 2nd Avenue and King Street, are being removed today to prevent the spread of Dutch elm disease in the city.
Residents are reminded that the pruning of elm trees is prohibited from April 1 to August 31 under provincial regulation. This prohibition helps us minimize the risk of spreading Dutch elm disease. The City has lost only 128 trees to the disease since 1981.
