An AMAZING elm tree!!

Genus:Ulmus

Location: Hampton, Iowa

I LOVE my elm tree! It is HUGE!  Unfortunately the dirt movers damaged its roots last fall (I took the photos to document the damage when/if the tree starts to show decline!)  It has been in my yard since long before we moved in 26 years ago.  It is over 18 feet in circumference and over 90 feet tall!  It has amazing multi-trunk growth.

My husband hates it and wants to cut it.  He knows I'll fight him tooth and nail to keep it! I love this tree!

This tree is located on our acreage, near Hampton, Iowa.
