After some legwork with Trees Winnipeg (Coaltion to Save the Elms) and 311, we got to the bottom of what you really need to do to battle Dutch Elm beetles & keep your established trees healthy.

The Basal Spray Program sprays the bases of all elms on the river in Winnipeg for Dutch Elm beetles. Every second year they do the Assiniboine houses, including the river front, elms on the property itself, and the boulevards. You don’t have to sign up for anything; it just happens.
