There is plenty of knowledge and info here. This is a new site. You just need to be capable and worthy of getting that knowledge.

I just might wander over there to see what kind of reception you get. They have a history of flaming (ridiculing) a lawn/tree guy like yourself. Good luck to you and your pictures. :laugh:

Dutch elm

Good observation --- this could explain why we lost an American elm about 8 years ago. It was about 15 feet to the right of the driveway. Trunk was 5 1/2 feet across...it was HUGE, and it was beautiful.

Damn, 5 1/2 feet across! Now that is a tree to get attached to. Even the White House lost all their A. Elms to DED. There were 200 and 300 plus year old elms. That shows how difficult it is to preserve an elm in an infection area if they cannot do it in our capitol with all the resources they have.

No doubt. Anybody hear if they saved that Live Oak at the University of Texas? I know some at the Alamo that are 300 - 400 years old.
