Province-wide elm tree pruning ban now in place The annual province-wide ban on pruning
elm trees is now in place for Saskatchewan.
The ban runs every year April 1 to Aug 31 as a way to stop the spread of Dutch elm disease by ensuring elm bark beetles are attracted to freshly pruned trees.
Roadside Swaps help us find items to reuse that are in good condition, reduces our community’s environmental footprint and keeps them out of landfill.
How it works: (See PDF for acceptable items list)
Starting at 9:00 a.m. on the swap date, items to give away are placed on the roadside, making sure they’re clearly marked as “FREE.” After that, all swap items are up for grabs by neighbours and other area residents. The swap ends by 6:00 p.m. when it’s time to return any unclaimed items back to your home along with all your newfound treasures.
Rabies Notice: It's that time of year again with visiting raccoons !!!
