Elm Trees Only – Fall Pruning
With exposed branches and a crisp October sun shining, reaching for those pruners is often tempting. It’s better to take a deep breath and focus on other chores.
Pruning deciduous or fruit trees in Fall may, with some warm subsequent days, induces new growth to sprout forth. But if those warm subsequent days don’t happen, after all the resources the tree invests into this growth, losing it to winter’s chill could deal damage to its overall health.
Elm trees are an exception to the rule. While Dutch Elm disease ravages many North American cities, the Edmonton area proudly has one of the largest uninfected populations in the world.
In the Capital region, it’s only legal to prune Elm between Oct 1 and March 31. The Elm Bark beetle, which carries the disease, stalks these lands and would gladly infect our Elms through an ill-timed open wound. Dutch Elm is so insidious that this could be disastrous to our urban forest.
