Cork Bark Elm
« on: August 24, 2009, 08:57 AM »
Here is another tree that got neglected this summer.  It was dug spring of 2007.  When I started on it (Saturday) the top growth was out of hand and the lower branches were suffering from all the top growth.  Thined it out a bunch and put on some wire.  As always the picture doesn't do it justice.  Really liked the shape and think if I keep on it, it should turn out to be a nice tree.

That one kind of has a skinny trunk, why don't you give it to me and I will try and fix it. John

I have a cork bark elm with a very similar trunk - I was planning to chop it next spring and go your general direction.  Thanks for sharing.
