Work has begun in Charlottetown on public and private properties containing diseased elm trees as part of the City’s Fall 2016 Dutch Elm Disease management program.
The City reminds the public that it is not releasing any of this elm wood to the general public. The wood is diseased and must be disposed of properly in order to manage the spread of DED. The wood will be piled then picked up by City staff and taken to a temporary disposal site. Removing wood from this site without authorization is prohibited. The wood will be transported to a permanent disposal site as the work progresses.
The public’s cooperation in this matter will help reduce the amount of DED that is present in Charlottetown’s urban forest.
