Elm Tree Pruning Ban

The annual Elm Tree pruning ban runs from April 1 to August 31. The ban is in effect because the native Elm Bark Beetle, which is responsible for spreading the deadly Dutch Elm Disease fungus, is the most active during this time and will be drawn to the smell of fresh pruning cuts ad may attract beetles to otherwise healthy Elms. Help save the Elms and DO NOT prune during this time.
