Re: Elms?

Laurie, look at the twigs, fine and drooping, not as coarse as red elm which looks a lot like white elm (americana). There is a faint pale green haze from the flowers, and red elm has enough red floral bits that the bloom looks reddish from a distance. Look at the bark too, the fissures run together...

Re: Armeggedon

Thanks for the links. I have some stuff from Rhora's nursery. The nut pines are very productive, but skip the innoculent. I just dug up a bucket of soil from the woods for the planting holes and they are doing fine. Nuts are VERY tasty. I've got a few more from seeds (Sheffield's) coming up in the p...

Re: Armeggedon

I have a lot of nut trees now, and am running out of room. Never met a seed I didn't like, grin. I still have room in the woods though, and am planting sweet chestnut and beech (american chestnut), and may plant more hazelnuts. I want to find out if beaked hazel makes nuts with Het3, don't know yet....

Re: Armeggedon

Part of the problem is that there are so many of us and only only planet. If we each wanted a little less, it would help. I don't mean we should all aim for 1000 kilowatt hours per person per day, but we could take 10 percent off the load on the grid by using 10 percent less electricity. In the deve...

Re: Native American dispersal legacy re:tree distribution

It's likely not just trees, but clams and other food organisms First nations were tending. See link about clam gardens https://www.sfu.ca/sfunews/stories/2014/ancient-clam-gardens-nurtured-food-security.html I suspect we just weren't looking, so we didn't see. Butternuts may have been spread by peop...

Re: sick elm?

Yes, it would be nice if they can come back. Still, better to try than give up :)
If it doesn't work, then Ok.

Re: sick elm?

Lucas, the seeds just fall to the ground in the early summer. You sweep them up and many will come up right away, with a few the following year. The seeds fall about 6 weeks after bloom, late June, early July here. Tom, I know many will die, but Princeton and its ilk were all 'found' trees, old surv...

Re: sick elm?

Wow, if that tree had a buddy and was producing seed, I'd be begging for seed in the mail by now :) It's a lovely elm. Our woods is wet and I beg elm seeds every chance I get, grin. It looks healthy to me too, lots of fine twigs up top, picture of health to me. Whatever the orange stuff is, it grows...
