Shohin Japanese Nire Elm

Post  thomasj on Wed Feb 17, 2016 7:00 pm

Here's a few pics of root stock from a Japanese Nire Elm that I used to make a few nice little shohin. They're about five yrs old I would say but the parent tree is well over 30yrs. Very Happy

Because of our warm winter they are just starting to pop new buds.

A couple of cool little trees. Thanks for posting them. Elms are a lot of fun, right?!?! Laughing

Yes they are a lot of fun but you really have to keep an eye open for the insect pests especially the scale. And of course in the spring when the rains come you have to watch out for Black Leaf fungus on the new growth. Aside from all that, yeah they are fun.

Luckily we've not had bad scale.....although a colleague lost two last year to fungus.
On the whole, and compared to other trees, Elms are pretty resilient.
Nice materials!! What a Face

Very nice trees.

But there have been many posts here about "Nire" and "Elm", notably by our very savvy, sweet friend Iris Cohen. See for instance:

These are just Ulmus parvifolia:
