A wooden grain elevator in the village of Treesbank, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Glenboro-South Cypress, was operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Closed in July 1971, the elevator was later moved to the Spring Valley Hutterite Colony (about N49.75813, W99.75669). Its present status is unknown.
