    celtis australis problems. fungi? disease?

    In the spring of 2020 I dug up a few celtis australis trees that grew on an abandoned lot near my house. There were hundreds of seedlings left untouched for about 10 years under the parent tree, an 90 year old huge tree. Although the leaves are not so pretty (the tree is also called nettle...

There was a point where I spent half hour every day to thin out the clumps of buds it was making, leaving only one at a spot for about two weeks, after that the weak shoots came and I covered it in plastic inside the...
