Collected elm update

Post  NeilDellinger on Mon Feb 08, 2010 11:46 am

In a new training pot, not so great but its a nice change of scenery from the nursery container its been in for 2 years. Roots still have some sorting out to be done. I will be working on ramification and a decent back branch this year. I will also complete the carving. I figured it best to take it slow while I soak longer on what the hollow should look like.



Chris (aka Chappy), This should fuel your appetite to come dig trees in March. See you then!





Have a good day...Neil

This will make an impressive gnarly old specimen with a few more years of development. Beautiful!
Thanks for sharing. Smile

Nice specimen. I wouldn't carve too much, maybe the scar near the bottom could be hollowed out. The natural wood texture looks good.
Is it a Cedar Elm?

Rob,
Spt on, all I have done up to this point is to remove the rotting wood. No massive carving projects here. The bark is great eh. Its actually a winged elm. We have tons of them in Oklahoma....just gotta find a place where the cows have been munching them for 20-30 years Smile

Any thoughts on a pot?

I have both Winged and Cedar elm in my collection. Neither really like the lack of a solid dormant period.

Here are some pot ideas

Cool virtual Rob! I like the 2nd pot...it would have to be a big one though!!

You are correct elm do need a solid dormant period. In Oklahoma they are the 1st to turn yellow and almost the last to bud out again.

Thanks for the ideas.
