We are pleased to offer fine quality Cedar elm bonsai & pre-bonsai for sale. Every collection should have one.

Cedar Elm (Cedarelm8pre)

Cedar Elm – Ulmus Crassifolia

I collected this specimen in February of 2019. The growth habit says broom-style (or broom-form) to me, so that’s the way I’ve tried to develop it. The base is 1.5″ across, and the height is currently around 14″. Great corky bark, and the branches are loaded with corky wings. Can be slip-potted this summer into a bonsai pot if you like.

Ships in mid- to late-May.

Cedar Elm (Cedarelm8pre)

Cedar Elm – Ulmus Crassifolia

Collected in February of 2019, this one has grown all by itself into a nice pre-bonsai. All I’ve done is trim it. You can literally put it in a bonsai pot in Spring 2020, do a little more branch selection, and have a showable Cedar elm bonsai.

The base is 1.5″, and it’s 22″ tall give or take.

Age about 10-15 years.

Ships now.

Cedar Elm (Cedarelm8pre)

Cedar Elm – Ulmus Crassifolia

This specimen was collected in February of 2018. I potted it last summer, and have continued to develop it since then. As you can see, it has ramified very nicely for having been in training only a year. The trunk has great character, including some nice bark.

The trunk base is 1.75″, and it’s 18″ tall from the soil surface. Just repotted into this Lary Howard oval today (6/29).

Age about 20 years.

Ships late July.

Cedar Elm (Cedarelm8pre)

Cedar Elm – Ulmus Crassifolia

This specimen was collected in February of 2018. For a relatively small tree, it’s loaded with character and maturity. Featuring great trunk movement and character, not to mention bark, I’ve gotten secondary and some tertiary ramification in just a single growing season. Initial styling and potting on 5/4/18. Trunk base 1″, height 13″. Stunning handmade Lary Howard oval. Age about 10-15 years.

It’s in fall color now. Nice!

Ships now if you’re not in the colder parts of the country; in spring otherwise.

Item # Celmbonsai9


Cedar Elm (Cedarelmbonsai4)

Cedar Elm – Ulmus Crassifolia

Here’s an attractive three-tree planting that I just assembled today (7/9/17) from material collected in April. The main tree has a trunk base of 1″, and the planting has an overall height of 16″ from the soil surface. Potted in a beautiful Chuck Iker round. I’d estimate the age of these trees at 6-10 years. Today (8/17/17) I performed the next step in developing this forest by trimming overlong branches and bringing in the silhouette.
