Elm Brush Piles on the Boulevard – What to Do?

The GeNA Tree Committee asks for everyone’s help in reporting trimmed elm branches left on the boulevards in our neighbourhood.

Piles of trimmed elm branches (example shown in the photo above) are left by workers with alarming regularity — despite provincial regulations against storing elm wood! 

If you see piles of brush left on the boulevard, please report to 311 (preferably with photos). We’d be grateful if you cc’d trees@glenelm.ca so that we can help monitor as well.

Do NOT take trimmed elm branches to use as firewood! Transporting and storing elm wood is against the law and can increase the spread of Dutch Elm Disease – which we don’t want any more of in Glenelm!
