Trees Winnipeg (Coalition to Save the Elms) was originally established as non-profit in 1992 dedicated to preserving Winnipeg’s beloved American elm trees through community engagement and education. Since then Trees Winnipeg mission has evolved into protection, preservation and promotion of the urban forest and urban environment.
Trees Winnipeg is an organization committed to protecting and educating Winnipeg on the benefits of its urban forest and threats that impact it. Trees Winnipeg is asking for your help in conducting the Winnipeg Forest Watch Program. We are looking for volunteers to conduct surveys on pre-determined routes. There will be two types of surveys. The first survey will be held in early summer to identify trees that may have been affected by emerald ash borer (EAB). The second survey will to identify potential candidates for the City of Winnipeg’s ash injection program.
Volunteers will be invited to attend two workshops, the welcome workshop and the wrap up workshop. At the welcome workshop, all volunteers will receive the information they need to identify trees that are affected by EAB and trees that can be candidates for injection to prevent EAB.
Trees Winnipeg with the partnership of the City of Winnipeg and dedicated volunteers can help combat and manage invasive pests in Winnipeg. Please, send this notice to any members interested in volunteering.
On behalf of Trees Winnipeg and our executive board of directors, I would like to say thank-you and we look forward to working with you in preserving our canopy.
