There is a wild feel to this quaint village surrounded by expansive farms and ranches, pronghorns, coyotes and so many different species of birds.

New webpage: Dutch Elm Disease

Posted on September 8, 2022 under: Announcements

We have a new page to inform you: Dutch Elm Disease.  Please read and understand it to keep our trees safe.

Empress is lucky to have all the trees that we do.  The trees we have the most of are Elm, and precautions are necessary to protect against Dutch Elm Disease (DED).

The Society to Prevent Dutch Elm Disease (STOPDED). monitors for the elm bark beetles annually, however we were not able to place our traps out this 2022 spring / summer season.  Thankfully there have been no confirmed cases in our area in recent years but that does not mean we should ignore prevention measures.

Annual pruning ban is in effect from April 1 to September 30.

Visit our new page on Dutch Elm Disease.
