Elms Coalition is concerned about the health of Saskatchewan's
community tree populations, in particular the threat of Dutch Elm
Disease. We undertake public education and action projects designed
to involve individual citizens as well as provincial and municipal
governments in the active care of community trees.
SOS Elms is active throughout
the province working toward protecting the urban forest. SOS Elms
creates awareness and understanding of Dutch Elm Disease through displays,
school programs and community projects. SOS Elms has undertaken community
tree inventory programs to inform the public as well as provincial
and municipal governments about the condition of each community's
tree population. In its advocacy role, SOS Elms acts as a citizen
watchdog of government agencies striving for policy change and responsible
management of urban forests.
