If you've still have the dead tree why not put it back in your forest..............it's (death) all part of a natural forest (I know very controversial), maybe tip it on an angle like its been blown over by the same storm that washed away the soil from the roots...... Laughing

Yes I still have it up to this time.
It's a good idea but it will elms easily. hehehe

Botanical reason behind defoliation

Post  cosmos on Fri Jan 21, 2011 1:34 pm

Hi Jun
In Malta, where we have very mild winters, we defoliate elms in July before the hot summer months arrive. The botanical reason behind this is this. When the new leaves are formed in the colder months (Jan, Feb) their internal anatomy is somewhat different from those that arise after the defoliation in July. This is especailly with regards to the number of stomata per unit area. The leaves formed during the winter time have more stomata per unit area and if left during the summer months the tree loses more water through transpiration through the stomata. By defoliating, the tree puts on leaves, which besides being better looking, are more adapted to the hot summer months becuase they have less stomata per unit area and so less water loss occurs.

Interesting post. Do you have a reference for this? I'd like to learn more.
