Third Case of DED

July 2021 - One case of Dutch elm disease (DED) has been confirmed in Saskatoon. An elm sample sent to the provincial lab by the City's Urban Biological Services staff has come back positive for DED. This case is the third case of DED since 2015.


Bequest to SOS Trees

  • Joan Browne, a member of SOS Elms during its earlier days, passed away in December 2017 at the age of 95. Joan's father Alfred Browne became Saskatoon's first Parks Superintendent in 1911 and tirelessly worked to establish Saskatoon's urban forest for the next 44 years. We wish to gratefully acknowledge her generous bequest to our organization.
