#1)  Big Rock Elm (Ulmus thomasii) in Hartington

Postby wrecsvp » Sun Apr 13, 2014 11:55 pm

This is my current runner-up in size compared to the Merrickville one, just found it yesterday.
85' tall, 123.75" CBH. No evidence of any Dutch Elm Disease prevention.  Pruned significantly toward utility wires 2 years ago according to owner, so is a little lopsided.

Driving home from SW Ontario yesterday, stopped by the large Rock Elms that I know about on the way.  So many elms continue to die from Dutch Elm Disease, it's always a bit nerve-wracking to drive up and see how they're doing.  Happy to report the Hartington tree continues to be in great health; showing a deep-green full crown in a summer of extreme drought.  Still growing well at the top and adding height too

Where exactly is this? Town?
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
