Dutch Elm Disease Survey Program Information 2020

Manitoba’s Agriculture and Resource Development’s Forestry Branch – Dutch Elm Disease Surveys/Invasive Forest Pest Monitoring/COVID-19

  • Dutch elm disease surveys and emerald ash borer monitoring will be moving forward again this season in participating communities.
  • Provincial surveyors will be driving or walking around both public and private properties while they work.
  • Surveyors wear high visibility vests and government issued identification. This year, staff may also be wearing masks or other personal protective equipment (PPE), due to COVID-19.
  • In support of physical distancing measures, our staff may not approach every resident or house before entering onto properties to conduct surveys.
  • Surveyors will still ring doorbells or knock on doors prior to taking branch samples, marking trees, or identifying firewood piles for removal.
  • Our staff will always maintain at least two metres distance between themselves and others, and we ask that residents respect this policy when approaching our staff as well.
