    Leaves of the Chinese Elm in winter: to leave or not?

    For several years I overwintered my Chinese Elm without leaves at -1C/+5C (30F/41F). I forcibly removed the leaves every winter.

    Chinese elm chop

    Had a ugly S shaped elm that I chopped over winter. The thing grew like a weed (had zero branches after the chop) and I finally did the first prune. I’m hoping a bud will break near the first bend to form a new apex so I can chop it lower. What are your thoughts?

As for Jacqueline Hillier (regardless of if its a parvifolia), I cant say because theyre still young. Didnt have any scale yet I think but I heard of one that...
