Crews Begin European Elm Scale Management Project

Medicine Hat – Beginning May 26 contractors will be working to inject City owned elm trees in various locations, with a biopesticide which is both environmentally inert and effective in controlling European Elm Scale, an insect which feeds on elm trees.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary construction, infrastructure renewal and repair work will continue throughout the city. Residents are reminded to allow crews space to work safely, and to adhere to physical distancing standards by staying at least two metres away from City workers.
