Ulmus

This ulmus is relatively new in my collection. It is developing quite well and it is vigorous grower. Now, top of the main trunk must have been worked with carving again. I did some carving of the stomp some years ago, but it was not sufficient. There have been too many potential continuations of the main trunk, so one of them was cut off and from that sop further down the trunk stomp was carved. On small sub-trunk carved section was too wide at the top, it was reworked as well. Rest of the job was to cut down and shorten many branches at the top section of the tree. Bottom branches were left almost intact, they will left without major cuts this year to gain girth.
