Hi, John...thanks...I am glad you like it. The tree was acquired several years ago from Keith Scott...I believe that it was collected by Keith and Kelly Adkins from Ohio. Hope this helps.

Tom

TOM,,,Thanks for the information,,,I wish i could find a tree like that down here... All i find is small ones that would take way too long to make a good tree... in this clay i can not get a good root ball any way...thanks john

That's an interesting pot. Is it a pot or a slab? Either way I like the composition; the usual bonsai pots don't always bring out the trees the best. Only thing I would suggest is to grow out the top to reduce the severity of the taper but that's personal preference I suppose.

Interesting pot and tree.

how old is the large wound on the trunk?
word of caution though, if I may, elms doesn't respond well to large cuts...be sure it heals well or you might end up losing the tree. be sure to protect it from excessive moist.

Eightynine: It is a slab of native sandstone that has been hollowed out. "Only thing I would suggest is to grow out the top to reduce the severity of the taper ......" - point well taken.

Jun: the wound you refer to is fairly old....I use a systemic fungicide twice a year which seems to have kept infection at bay.

Very nice tree Tom. I agree that the top needs some thickening but other than that, very fine indeed. I don't agree about the " wounds dont respond to large cuts"? I have a lot of Elms and they are full of hollows and callous really well. Preserving the deadwood is a problem though.

Thanks for the kind words, Will.. may I ask what your strategy is for preservation of deadwood areas on your elms...Thank you.

Internal deadwood is not such a problem and can be effectively treated with any manner of preserving oils on a regular basis. Linseed oil or teak oil are very good. Up to now, I have been treating external deadwood with a wet rot wood hardener. It has preserved the deadwood on one of my Elms for about 10 years but I noticed this year that some of the wood is getting a bit soft. There is a product I'm about to try called Parabaloid. It has been used in the preservation of ancient artefacts and several of the members here have started to use it. I will find out more and post again.
