Tree Assessments in Torrington and Huxley April 29 - May 10
A contractor will be in Torrington and Huxley conducting assessments on trees starting on April 29, then moving over into Huxley. The tree assessment will be on any trees that lie within the County's 20meter right of way, which could seem to be part of resident properties. We are assessing the condition of the trees and shrubs to help us plan for future tree plantings. In Torrington, we will also be pruning and removing trees which are diseased or dead, in order to replant in those locations.
From March through June, Kneehill County ASB will be selling 2% Liquid Strychnine to agriculture producers for use in controlling severe infestations of Richardson Ground Squirrels.
Call 403-443-5541 to book an appointment, or visit our Gopher Control page for more information.
