    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...

    Happy friday all!! Here are some progression photos from this year alone of the developments of my cork bark Chinese Elm.

    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...

    Chinese Elm... seeking advice

    So I have had my Chinese elm for a couple months now and though it is a young and small tree I would like some ideas as to what to do with this tree moving forward. I would like to thicken the trunk and get more dense foliage. I'm open to whatever you think could best help this tree moving...

    Ulmus parvifolia (A) progression

    I’m working on a longer term informal upright Chinese elm. I purchased the tree in early 2012 and its first three years were subpar due to my noob usage (“learning opportunity”) of subpar soil material (too organic), inadequate pot sizing, and poor timing of pruning. Tiny tree, mid-2012...

    WTB Elm and Maple pre-bonsai

    Living in orlando it's hard to find any elm or maple (pre)bonsai in the area that are somewhat affordable for someone working a minimum wage job like myself, anyone know of some good places to look or does anyone have any they would be willing to part with?

    Tiny Elm

    I found this little guy at a local garden center. I was attracted to it because it had the thickest trunk and I saw an opportunity to chop it for taper. Since the chop, it's put out some strong growth, although not in the most desirable locations along the bends. Maybe spring will bring some new...

    Spring bonsai problems...

    Hi all, For the first time in a few years I am having real problems bringing my bonsai out of hibernation. The trees have moved around a lot, unfortunately, and I am worried that their current home outside my window is not providing enough light. My trees are 2 Elms, and a Yew. They've been...

    2 elms in ground need chopping

    I could use some advice on what to do with 2 elms that have been growing in the ground for awhile. I'm not sure what type this first one is. I feel like I let the large right trunk get to big but I kind of want to leave it so there isn't a huge scar. Should I shorten both trunks and just...
