(Ulmus procera) English Elm No.3

Post  Mr Miyagi on Tue Mar 06, 2012 8:03 pm

Collected two days ago. On the usual daily dose of Rhizotonic. Came out with a fair amount of fine roots. Again in the Polly tunnel for the next month. Not much at the minuet but a nice big completely hollow trunk. Any ideas on where to chop it back to; to make a start would be appreciated.
Thanks Sam

This reminds me of an elm that is a short distance away form where I live. It has several interesting hollows where branches must have broken(probably from a hurricane) and rotted out. I think they might even house a bee nest or two. Your tree certainly has a great deal of potential and some very beautiful features.

Nice. I'd chop the thin ones down to about 2" and the big one by half or 1/3 of it's current length.

Hi!

I would chop down the two smaller brances living the bigger one alone,and hollow it completly as a continuation of the hollow trunk.
The tree ramification would be to the right in this picture,making a somewhat cascade style ramification.
The tree would look like and old man bended by the weight of the ages,even the name can result from here:"The old man"

This is the idea:
