    Neglected hokkaido elm

    I got a Hokkaido Elm out of the trash at work. Its in bad shape but has some green growth and it is budding! I need to know how to help it get healthy again. I think it was being overwatered. Should i prune the naked branches even if they have tiny green spots on them? Should i repot it and...

    Problems with nebari of Elm. What correction technique is better?

    Hi. I have two elms, their age is about 10 years, and both have a similar problem: the central root isn't in the center, but on the side. These elms grew between the stones. I made a sketch of how this root looks out. It will not be possible to completely remove it, because it's located on...

    Yamadori Cedar Elm Straight Into Bonsai Pot

    This weekend I was able to collect a nice size Cedar Elm that has a nice radial root spread and primary branching. I think I may reduce one of the two larger upper branches a bit more but I think I’ll take my time and think on it for a bit. I went straight to a bonsai pot because I didn’t want a...

    Elm dug from a wooded area 1 year ago. Grew well in a flower pot last year. Potted at an angle and wired up for fun.

    Collected twin trunk cedar elm

    I recently came across a strand of only multi trucked elms that had me puzzled on their form for a bit. Upon further inspection I realized that they had all been trunk chopped close to the ground and it seems like all but a couple kept on chugging without batting an eye. Anyway this guy caught...

    Chinese Elm changing leaves

    Hello- I am wondering if this Chinese Elm is just losing its leaves because it is fall here in Chicago and has been a bit chilly recently, though the tree has been indoors. Or, is there something seriously wrong with it? The yellowing started a few days ago, maybe a week. The tree has always...

    Elm is showing signs of sickness.

    So I have a few indoor trees and last weekend I bought a new Chinese elm and I noticed when I got home from work some of the leaves are turning dark green and are starting to droop. I did a Google search and all I found were people with issues of them having their leaves falling off but nothing...

    Jacqueline Hillier Elm Dark Leaves falling off

    Hello all, I noticed something was wrong with my Jacqueline Hillier Elm this morning when watering. Some of it's leaves are extremely dark green and brittle. I would say about 30 percent of older leaves towards the interior seem to have this issue. I touched a few of them and they...

    Chinese Cork Elm progression and Calcium deposit help.

    Happy friday all!! Here are some progression photos from this year alone of the developments of my cork bark Chinese Elm. I also bring a question to the table, I live in Southern California which means my water quality is terrible and I get relatively little rain. I do my best not to touch the...

    elm disease identification

    Anyone know what this is? I was going to try to use Phyton 35 on it and see if that takes care of it. It's been on several small shoots (that are now removed) and I saw this today. The elm is a chinese elm (although others have claimed it might be an american elm).

    Mature Elm Air Layering

    I purchased a bag of Perlite last year and was all set to go air layering. Well as we all do I didn't get around to it. This spring I have located several older elms that I have permission to do air layering on. Reading quote a few of these posts I still have a few questions. Using these...
