Here are a few trees that will be posted for sale in 2016 (among many others).

Chineseelm10-3-15I just love Chinese elm forests.  This one is composed of five trees, with the largest having a basal trunk thickness of 1″.  The planting is 19″ in height.  Paul Katich crafted the beautiful tray.

This forest will continue filling in next year, and the trunks should take on that nice whitish appearance that makes them look old.

I’ve been working on this little sweetgum for a few years now.  It’s been entirely container-grown.  Trunk is just over 1″ in diameter, height 14″.

Here’s the same tree last year.  How’s that for rapid development?
