The City of Parksville will remove six hazardous elm trees starting the week of April 12. 

The work is expected to take two weeks. There will be limited parking on Memorial Avenue and a partial road closure may be necessary, the city said, adding the trees will be replaced when suitable.

The city has commissioned further pruning to help mitigate future issues with the remaining canopy. It will also continue with supplemental irrigation and fertilization during the dry summer months. 

If there is any salvageable wood from the trees, the city said it hopes to coordinate with the McMillan Arts Centre to repurpose for art projects.

Two hazardous trees on Memorial Avenue were removed last November following an inspection.
