Here is another Florida elm.

Repotted today.
Front and back...or back and front?

I know it needs a little trimming.

Any comments or suggestions welcome.

front/back, back/front? This is 360 my friend! ;)

Anyway, I love the balance and the branch placement.

Finally something intelligent to discuss. Way to go Jay!

The presentation is soothing and will only get better with time.

I like the image presented, it has a haunting quality about it. Great work on the moss, it fits in well and lends to the overall environment.


I hope to see this after the refinement, its not often we see such nice bonsai here.

Anyh plans to induce more taper on the main trunks? If so, how will you go about it?

Gee people,
I'm a little overwhelmed by your responses. Thanks!
Cubbie, I collected these elms from one spot on the side of my driveway.

This is a tremendous tree. I'll throw out a little bait though. Can you imagine it without the center trunk?

Steve, just to clarify, are you talking about in the first pic "P2130103.jpg"?

Thanks Steve,
Yeah, which center trunk?
There are a couple that could be called the center trunk though I think I see which one you are talking about.

Boondock, thanks, give it a shot....

Only four years from this.

Jay,

That is a really great tree, and in just four years from collection! Thanks for sharing.

I finally got around to trimming this up some. I see from the pics I probably need to do a little more.

Here are the views from the four sides.... I see even more flaws now. Well this is a work in progress :)

Thanks for all your comments.
