If you’ve lost a tree in your yard to Dutch Elm disease, you could be in luck.
The city is stepping up a program to help pay for you to replace it.
A grant from TD and Tree Canada will allow 700 homeowners to replace their trees at a cost of 55 dollars.
That will include workshops and training on how to re plant the tree.
Dutch Elm has been a problem in Winnipeg for years. The city estimates 6500 trees were marked for removal last year. Most of those were on private properties.
You can register online at www.savetheelms.mb.ca.
The planting will happen in September.
