Show you English Elms if you got them flaunt them .

Postby Meagi » November 29th, 2017, 11:33 am

Just thought I’d start a thread on Ulmus Procera seeing there is a few of us that like them.

Plan on starting to work mine this week end as it going to be finally cool for a bit .

The start of a great thread I'm sure.
Collected this Elm from a Gaulburn dig way back in 04. My very first tree I ever collected and what a trunk for my first attempt. Never done any carving or jining on the trunk and left it to show it's natural undisturbed age.

Nice treemate , don’t you love how these trees roll over the bark to make it look entirely different in years to come . They just get bettter with age naturally .
