EFFECTIVE APRIL 11, 2019 . . . a Fire Ban has been issued for Kneehill County, due to the dry and windy spring conditions.
All fire permits are suspended or cancelled and no new fire permits will be issued.
No campfires (or other open fires) are allowed in campgrounds or backcountry and random camping areas. This includes charcoal briquettes. Gas or propane stoves/barbeques and portable propane fire pits are allowed.

Road crews are currently working on the service road in front of the Ladysmith Cafe and the Trochu Liquor Store, please slow down and watch for all signs and personnel.
There are many trees and shrubs around town that are infected by Black Knot disease. This fungus will continue to grow and will release spores that will infect neighbouring trees.
The Town of Trochu suggests that you prune or have these trees removed to minimize further spread of the disease. They can be hauled to the town’s transfer site and thrown into the burn pits where they will be incinerated to prevent further infection. Early spring or late fall is a good time for seeing the infection and pruning.
More information can be found here on the Government of Alberta’s website.
