Tree Banding on Pause

ATTENTION TREE BANDERS OF WEST BROADWAY:

Every year West Broadway Community Organization leads the community in a fall Tree Banding effort around the neighbourhood.

This year the City of Winnipeg along with Trees Winnipeg: Coalition to Save the Elms have announced that it is unnecessary to band trees at this time as cankerworm populations are at an all time low due to yearly tree banding efforts as well as the cankerworms natural life cycle.

Due to this information we have concluded that we will hold off on banding trees until the need once more out ways the environmental cost of waste produced in this activity.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us: gardens@westbroadway.mb.ca or call 774-7201 ext. 4

Community Walkabouts! What are they?

Community Walkabouts are all about you getting to know your neighbours and your block! West Broadway Community Organization will work with you to gather neighbours and we’ll continue on a walk down your street and down a chosen back lane. Together we will talk about and document what you find pleasing or concerning conditions and find areas of common interest. After our walk, with the recorded information we can work together to contact proper officials to deal with any issues!

To host a Community Walkabout or to see where one is planned near you, please contact Jazmin at community@westbroadway.mb.ca or drop in Monday-Thursday 10AM-4PM.
