The Elms of New England


Just at the moment the Elms and Poplars are putting on the best autumnal display on the New England Tablelands. The avenues of varying goldenness are spectacular.
It's ironic that the Elm Tree has become a minor pest on the Tablelands, in contrast with it's natural environment, Europe, where it was decimated in successive waves through Dutch-Elm disease during the 20th century.

  1. Introducing non-native species often end in disaster.
    But it is nice to know these trees still exist somewhere!

  2. Glad to see that you are experiencing some Autumnal colour! Our show is very wimpy on the peninsula! Some trees are very pale colours and others are a sad brown! That's about it!

  4. I too am noticing the polars going golden when we head west. They don't colour well in the mountains but look brilliant further out.

    Best wishes for a wonderful Easter.

  5. Fine looking young trees but also sounding like a fine family soap opera!
