Prince Albert, SK - Residents are reminded to prune their elm trees by March 31st, or to delay until early fall, as the provincial ban on pruning elm trees will be in effect between April 1st and August 31st. The ban ensures that elm bark beetles, which transmit Dutch Elm Disease (DED), are not attracted to the pruning cuts when these beetles are most active.
