Nominations needed for Notable Trees of Saskatoon

SOS Elms Coalition invites Saskatoon residents to nominate trees of special significance for the new update of their Tree Tour Guide, which is to be available in 2015. It will provide a self-guiding tour of up to 30 selected unique and unusual trees of Saskatoon. It will highlight the variety and growth forms of trees in Saskatoon to promote public appreciation of the beauty and value of Saskatoon's urban forest. Trees can be nominated for reasons such as exceptional size, unusual form, important botanical value, rarity, or historical importance.

Nominated trees should be relatively free of damage and accessible for viewing without disturbing privacy if on private property. Notable trees beyond the 30 selected for the Guide will be listed on SOS Elms' website. Nominations close on 15 August 2014.

For more information contact the Co-Presidents of SOS Elms Coalition Inc.: Richard Kerbes (306-653-4209) and Jim Wood (306-373-6007) or email us.

SOS 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.
