    Doomed Chinese Elm Branch

    Hey All I had a Chinese elm in the backyard that I was reluctantly avoiding to cut some branches that had starting to grow over my neighbors fence. Thought I’d try to salvage some of it. Here are some pictures of when I removed the air layer over the weekend and how it finished up. Curious to...

    Chinese Elm losing leaves with brown tips

    Hi! I'm very new to bonsai. I just received a 10-year-old Chinese Elm two weeks ago. I was worried that the shipping would hurt the tree since it took a week to get to me due to delivery delays; I was worried about under watering and potentially dried-out roots. But when I received it, the...

    Elm leaves question

    My Chinese elm has had spotted leaves for months now. I’m a new owner and have inherited this tree in March. It’s about 10 years old and when I got it I just thought it was uncared for. But even the new growth is showing up with spots, so now I’m stumped. It’s also not on one specific section...

    Ulmus P. 'Hokkaido' clump - What would you do?

    Background: I've been putting sticks in pots for just under a year now. I've got about 10 trees in the very early to early stages of development, so I was very excited to find this tree at my local nursery, which I believe could be made into a decent (for a beginner) shohin-sized bonsai in maybe...

    Chinese Elm Red Scale ID and Treatment

    Hi All, I recently noticed what looks like a red scale on my Chinese Elms. Here are some pictures from the largest Elm which appears to be the most affected. It runs off quite easily and is powdery, but there is a lot of it on the trunk and primary branches. This particular tree gets 4+ hours...

    How do I help my new Chinese Elm heal this scar?

    Hi! I just aquired a Chinese Elm from Norways only Bonsai Nursery, Taki Bonsai. I liked the trunk and the slight nebari.

    Please help with recovering Chinese Elm

    Hi everyone, About 6 month ago, I have bought a 7 Year old Chinese Elm from a Bonsai. As it was from a nursery, its soil was very compact. Given that I am very inexperienced, whenever I was watering the bonsai, I was not watering it enough. So all the water that I have watered the bonsai with...

    I Hedge pruned a Chinese Elm

    This is a fun tree. I bought it from a bare root nursery a couple years ago. It has a nice root flare, semi-mature bark and a straight as a Navajo arrow trunk. Its summer in Australia and this tree just had its second major growth spurt this season. So I chopped it back like a mad dog!! I took...

    Elm(en)tree

    So I cheated, I didn’t make this, I bought it. Also, it came from zone 6 or 7, so it might even wake up in my brutal winter (it seriously is brutal, too hot to go without AC but not hot enough to justify turning it on). Anyways, I think I wanna raise it 2 or 3mm to expose some roots. It’s...

    What’s going on with my Chinese elm ??

    I purchased my first tree (an 8 year old Chinese elm) and it’s arrived with these kind of markings all over the trunk. Really new to this and I can’t find any answers online so I’m just wondering if anyone could tell me what this is/if I need to do anything. Thank you !!

    Hi all! I'm completely new to this hobby. I received a bonsai as a present in late august! From the information I've gathered it seems that it was ordered online but other than that I have no more context on where it came from. It's a Chinese Elm, that is (unconfirmed) 7 years old. I'll just...

    See you guys in a few years...

    No, not me.. Just slip potted these 2 little elms in to the ground (yeah could have done in Spring but at least this gives them a head start and its one job out the way). The middle Elm is actually the bottom half of the BIG one on the right. They both make up my first ever tree, my cookie...

    New Bonsai Chinese elm

    I went to Garland's in Corvallis (can't recommend enough!) And bought a Chinese elm in a pot. Looks to me to be about 5 years old (I could and probably am so WRONG). I enjoy the trunk which is why I bought it but upon further inspection it looks like it was planted quite deep in the pot? I...
