Residents are now free to prune their elm trees, as the city has lifted its ban on pruning. 

The ban had been in place from April to the end of August to prevent the spread of Dutch Elm Disease. 

In a media release, city staff said removal of elm trees can happen at any time throughout the year, but the entire tree must be removed and all waste taken to the landfill. There is a fee for commercial hauling of green waste to the landfill.
