Yamadori English Elm

Post  pmjos on Mon Jun 21, 2010 7:01 pm

This little gem is a yamadori English Elm collected with permission. It was growing in a field in east London where after it had been blown down by the wind it was cropped by the horses which were grazing there for over 30 years. It is an amazing 30cm across the hollow base of the trunk which forms a natural conical shape. This is as close I have ever come to a ready made natural bonsai. hope this works - havn't posed an image on here yet!

I've loked at this several times on facebook as you well know. Fantastic piece of English Elm. I am rather partial to this species and I'm very jealous. Would be happy to have this beauty on my benches, thats for sure.
