Not that it is a big deal, but there is wire "as in coils" on a right branch half way up.  Nice tree

April fool, there is wire all over it.

Eventhough the picture was taken on March 16, and "all" the fall wire is off the tree for the yearly Fresno exhibit this weekend, I lied as it is all still there....

can't pull one over on you guys.

Has it really come to this on internet forums now...

This is a great progression, a real testament to how fast elms ramify. Thanks for this akeppler!

I do have a question though, could you elaborate on this part for me- The tree responded well and grew new tissue over the broken trunk. nearly all the dead wood was retained for texture and the new trunk has grown over it like lava.

especially-nearly all the dead wood was retained for texture.

how does this work exactly, could this be applied to other deciduous or any other fast growing (rather large scar high healing tree)? Do other people have a name for this kind of technique (i.e. citrication- scarring a tree to increase taper), this is the first i've ever heard of something like this, sorry if I'm bugging ya, I'm just interested in assimilating your technique.

Good one Al. I was looking forward to hearing about this "lava" too.

Wicked tree if it went unmentioned!

Sorry I don't come here every day. Herman is right on the money. I thought the lava flow was self evident in the photo. To some yes, others not so much.

Akeppler, i am definitely a beginner, and as such have only ever heard of removing branches flush to prevent unwanted bulges, but now in retrospect it makes sense that one can then also leave the wood non flush to create a wanted bulge. Something similar to what i have heard called citricication?

 Herman, no problem at all, I'm sure you meant nothing by it, my use of it was meant in the exact same way, albeit a little curt, sorry about that =/
