MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw advises residents that boulevard tree block pruning will begin on Monday, March 15, 2021. Boulevard trees on the 800-1000 blocks of Alder Ave and 1st Ave NE, the 900-1000 blocks of Chestnut Ave. and 100 block of Saskatchewan St. E will be pruned by Sawyer’s Landscape Management between March 15 and March 31, 2021.

“Block pruning is an important component of maintaining the health and safety of our urban forest,” said Sarah Regent, City Horticulturist. “Boulevard trees will be pruned to promote healthy and safe growth of the trees and provide appropriate clearance over streets, sidewalks, and private property.”

Pruning will begin on Alder Avenue. Vehicles should be moved from the front street of the 800-1000 blocks of Alder Avenue prior to 7:30 am on March 15. As pruning progresses, trees will be posted with no-parking signs the day before pruning is to take place. We thank you for your cooperation.

Residents on the blocks being pruned may experience temporary power outages. We apologize for the inconvenience.
