Ulmus pumila - air-layering 2011

Post  Pavel Slovák on Wed Jun 29, 2011 10:10 pm

Hi all

In BC, I bought a large elm. I decided to use the upper part of the tree.

Wow, you removed a lot more material than I usually do when layering. Do you always remove that much, or is it species specific? I usually just cut off the bark ring/cambium and then scrape down until I reach the harder wood. Did that with a corkbark elm (yatsubusa) a month ago and am now seeing roots in the moss.

I agree with Coh. I would only ever remove the bark and cambium layer. Cutting into the xylem and outer wood must disrupt the water conducting vessels. Hopefully the top will draw from the Sphagnum around the wound. It will be interesting to see if this works but it is totally unnecessary. Especially with Elm.

Hi Pavel,
I have been looking at this method more and more for material. I just don't have the time or experience to search and collect tree's from the wild. I see you placed some white book or something or other, what is it?

Hilton... I think it is a cigarette pack!

I still think it will be a nice looking tree if the layer takes!

Hi friends

Thank you for yours nice replies.Very Happy

Hi Will, yes you are right, the elm would be enough. Only trim the tree bark and cambium.
I tried the thick tree trunk this way many times since 2005. It's fast and with me always with success. Very Happy

I have found Elms to be quicker to root than any other species and have separated 8" /210mm diameter trunks within 6 weeks of initiating the airlayer. Very Happy

It will be interesting to see how quickly you get enough roots to cut the tree, Pavel.

Maybe we should start a "Quickest air-layer challenge"? Very Happy

Yes, it is now over a year later! Why not follow up with a report?

Yes I would be interested to see if cutting into the sapwood works as well as just ring barking the tree?

I would like to see how it turned out too. Maybe Pavel will respond.

I forgot to comment that, that is the deepest cutting on an air-layer I've ever seen.

It looks like Pavel is down to the heartwood. Hopefully the top will survive and it's an Elm.
