Out of Season Digs - Elm Yamadori

I was introduced to a former member of the club who was doing some clearing of his back yard. He had some elms out there that had been growing for between 15 and 20 years and was happy to have me dig them up. The reciprocating saw made quick work of the process.

I took home 4 elm: 2 chinese elm and 2 corkbark elm. There were mosquitoes bothering me while I dug so I didn't want to wait and take pictures. Just got down to business. Here's the 4 elm trees we excavated.

As you can see, 2 went into the ground and 2 went into pots. I hope they respond well and next year we'll start looking at what needs to be done. I'm content for now to keep them alive.
