Proper Tree pruning is vital to the health of your tree

 Proper tree pruning is important to the health of your tree

Trees are an important part of our urban environment. Healthy trees supply valuable economic, human health, benefits and also generates an increase to property value. It takes many years to grow a mature tree and maintaining the tree health is extremely important and worthwhile.

Pruning is an essential component to keep your trees healthy and can help prolong its life span if done properly. Pruning is the act of removing dead, diseased or undesirable limbs. The objective of pruning is to produce strong, healthy, safe, attractive trees. Before pruning a tree you need to understand why, when and how to prune.

It is recommended to hire a professional arborist who is qualified and experienced in pruning. Arborist should be certified and belong to a professional organization such as the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). This will insure that the person you have hired has met specific eligibility requirements. ISA certified arborists are also required to take continuing education to recertify every few years. Always check references and try to check out trees that have been pruned previously by the person you are hiring.

Avoid tree service companies that recommend "topping" to control tree height and safety. Topping, the practice of removing large branches and tops of trees, has become one of the urban forest's major threats. It dramatically shortens the lifespan of trees and creates hazardous trees rather than eliminating them. This type of cutting results in unsightly weak regrowth that becomes more vulnerable to insects and disease such as Dutch elm disease (DED). The large open wounds also can attract invasion of rotting organisms. A topped tree is more likely to break or uproot in a storm than a healthy tree

We need to take care of our trees so they can be appreciated by future generations. It takes a long time to grow a mature tree in our harsh environment and improper pruning can quickly put a tree into rapid decline. A loss of trees is not just an esthetic loss but has real economic, health and safety impacts.

Since DED and its vectors are included in the Alberta Agricultural Pests Act, it is illegal to prune elms during the elm pruning ban which runs from April 1 to September 30. It is also illegal to store elm firewood at any time of the year.

For more information on pruning, certified ISA arborists and DED visit either http://www.isaprairie.com/ or www.stopded.org

The Town of Drumheller to move forward on new water feature at Rotary Park


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

​July 8th 2019

 Following a report presented at the council meeting on Monday July 8th the fountain will not reopen, however staff, in consultation with the public, will start the process of looking at replacement water feature for this area.

Since the fountain has been filled at the end of May it has lost 1,600,000 litres of water, which is double the capacity of the indoor pool. As the fountain has been operated this summer, the amount of water leaking from the fountain has increased. The fountain and spray park share some of the same infrastructure and in order to not damage that equipment, it was determined that the fountain shouldn't operate any longer.

"As the water loss increased every time the fountain was switched on we felt we had no options but to stop operating the fountain. It is vital that we protect the remaining Rotary Spray Park infrastructure." outlined Dave Brett, Director of Infrastructure for the Town of Drumheller.

"This is a very difficult decision as the fountain is a much loved part of our community", explained Mayor Heather Colberg. "However it is clear the current fountain infrastructure is at the end of its life. We will be working with the public and community organizations, in early fall of 2019 to determine what kind of water feature to construct with implementation in spring 2020. We are excited to hear people's ideas and to make the area an even better place for people to spend time."

The fountain area will have some beautification work completed such as flower pots to make the area more attractive for the remainder of the summer. A request for proposals is being drafted this week for a company to work with the community to develop recommendations. People should look out for the public consultation sessions.

NOTES The report given to council is attached to the media release.
