New Saskatoon Tree Tour Booklet to be Launched

The new Saskatoon Tree Tour booklet is a guide to impressive examples of species growing in our city. The 2015 edition revises SOS Elms' 2004 booklet and adds full colour with original photographs by Judy Wood. It includes 24 individual trees with fine examples of the basic stalwarts such as American elm, Manitoba maple, and Colorado blue spruce. It also has unique and unusual trees such as Ohio buckeye, Douglas fir, Amur corktree, and black walnut. Five "tree destination sites" in Saskatoon are also included (Woodlawn Cemetery, Patterson Garden Arboretum, University Campus, Forestry Farm, and Richard St. Barbe Baker Park) along with some historical articles about early Saskatoon tree planting.

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.
