Dutch Elm Disease Detected in City

Be advised that Dutch elm disease has been detected in the City of Melfort. The City is now undertaking the process of removing infected trees and firewood. Dutch elm disease (DED) is caused by a fungus spread by tiny elm bark beetles that breed under the bark of dead or dying elm wood. If that wood contains the DED fungus, each new generation of beetles can infect healthy elms.

You can help prevent DED in our City:
• Keep your own elm trees healthy;
• Don’t prune elm trees from April 1 to August 31;
• If you see signs of DED, report them to your municipal authority;
• Don’t buy, sell, store, transport or use elm firewood; it’s illegal;
• Remove and dispose of the tree promptly if DED is confirmed. The City landfill can accept diseased wood; and
• Support DED management in your community.
