Trees Winnipeg (formerly known as The Coalition to Save the Elms), Manitoba Inc. was founded in 1992, and is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the stewardship of the elm and other trees, forests and the urban environment. Although we are based in Winnipeg, we have members throughout Manitoba.
Our organization was originally formed in response to the heightened threat to Winnipeg's extraordinary American elm population by Dutch elm disease. Over time, new threats have placed our urban forest at risk. Trees Winnipeg now works to not only preserve our elm canopy, but to promote species diversity, urban forest research, integrated forest management, and public participation.
