Never too early to ask for some input

Post  pmjos on Mon Aug 23, 2010 11:01 pm

This Elm is going to be collected in March 2011 and I'm looking for some ideas. The trunk is about 15cm across and the whole tree as it still sits in the ground is 30cm. There is lots of natural movement and deadwood, the nebari is huge but more to the left.

Sorry the pics arn't clearer in the background.

I would start by collecting as much root ball as possible.

Has lots of potential. Good luck with it.

Great find! I think it would look better on this side of the pond. Very Happy

I wouldn't be bothered to much about the rootball. Looks like very loamy soil? 10 minutes max, to get a tree like this out. Cut round wath a sharp spade, about a foot (30 cm) from the trunk and pop it out. Elms survive with the smallest amount of roots and I often put them straight in a training pot. Remove all the old soil as well. Lovely tree by the way.
