4 trees infected with Dutch elm disease in Regina
Potentially-devastating tree disease spread by elm bark beetle
Four tress have been infected with Dutch elm disease in Regina.
It's bad news in a city where all trees were originally hand planted, and one third of those are elms.
Two of the diseased trees have already been removed. The city didn't say where they were located.
The third, located near the corner of McDougall Road and Shannon Road, was cut down Tuesday morning.
The fourth tree, on Knowles Crescent in the Parliament Place neighbourhood, hasn't been cut down yet.
The disease is spread by the elm bark beetle. The city regularly sprays for the beetles.
