Letter of the Day

Preserving our elm trees

  • Print

Several times in the past week or so, while talking with friends, we have discussed how beautiful Winnipeg is at this time of year.

Whether gazing over our urban forest from a highrise or standing beneath it, we have marvelled at how green our city is and how good it makes us feel. Inevitably, it reminds us that our American elms have been under attack by Dutch elm disease for many years, and our city foresters have done a magnificent job of preserving them for our benefit.

We owe them a debt of gratitude for all their work. Every moment of our enjoyment is partly thanks to them.
