Five collected Elms

Post  Paul B (Scotland) on Mon Apr 25, 2011 10:39 pm

These Elms all came from my works yard. They were growing in an area of neglected ground that I've previously collected Privets from. I noticed a few guys wandering about cutting back weeds and shrubs and I became interested when I saw some Elm branches being dumped on the compost heap. When I asked what they were doing, they told me they were clearing the area for 20 pallets of stone being delivered the next day. I went to investigate and found about 15 Elm stumps growing amongst the weeds. With only one days notice I could only manage to collect these, hopefully some of the others haven't been crushed under tonnes of stone and I can get them next year.

All have leafed out and seem to be growing strongly. these photos were taken a few days ago and all of them have continued to grow well.

Hello Paul. I'm really liking the forth one and the deadwood on the second to last. Good finds and some excellent practice material too.
