The Town of Redvers has reported that they had 212 cases of trees infected with Dutch elm disease this summer.
Town Chief Administrative Officer, Bonnie Rutten, explains that the while the trees were found all over town, they were commonalities.
"It looks like it's more the original properties in town. They were older, and huge."
She adds that clean up was largely left to the homeowners.
"We left it up to whoever owns the tree to get whoever they wanted to cut it down or they had the option of cutting it down themselves if they had the equipment. There's about four different companies that were coming around town to do the work. It's mainly all done now."
The only infected trees left, are ones that are too close to power lines to be safely cut down. Those will have to wait until SaskPower can attend to them.
"Their crews are very busy with the fires up north which definitely took precedence over our tree issues. But they get here and they'll cut them down from the power line and then the homeowners can go from there."
The town will attempt to prevent any more outbreaks by spraying the trees with an pesticide designed to kill the beetle which carries Dutch elm disease.
"Sometime in October, the company called Green Drop, it's who we got to identify the diseased trees, are going to come back and they're going to spray all the healthy trees with the basal spray. And then we'll just keep an eye on them because there could be more again next year."
