Did you split the tree in the last picture into the pots on the left and right? Was it 2 trees in the first place? Either way a nice little tree. Thanks for posting.

Neil,
Thank you. It was 2 trees and I separated them.

If you look in the second to last picture you can tell that the smaller tree was losing vigor, so I thought I should separate them. Smile

I like your trees. I hope the smaller one makes it. How long have you been growing these elms? What is planted in the small red pot?
Best, Todd

Todd,
Thank you. I believe that it is scotch moss in the small red pot. I have had these elms for a year.

John,
I am not certain I like this angle either. Thank you for your input. Smile

I must agree with John here, I believe this tree looked much better standing up, but it looks good now as well.

I also like the wooden stand!
Is it hand made by you perhaps?

Nakaya,,your tree does look good..i did not mean to be negitive...i do think it needs to be up right because of the great bottom trunk!!! wire a good apex up maybe a little movement in the limbs...you will have a nice little elm.....i love elms anyway i have 6 in different sizes...let us know what you think....take care john

I made both stands. The one on the left in the last picture was just an applique purchased at the hardware store. The stand on the right I carved using a dremel.

The majority of my collection are elms. I didnt feel negative from your input and appreciate it. I posted this for input because I would like to make my trees look better. When I change the tree to a more suitable angle I will post pics. Smile
