Ended up way better looking than I would have imagined from the starting pics.

There's still some slippery elm around me, lots of Chinese elms which was brought in when the American elms began dying almost 60 years ago, but no more than 1 or 2 American left where there were streets lined with them for miles. Too bad. I'd seen pictures of furniture made w. the wood, and it always looked nice.

When the weather warms up, you might check back to the lot and look for morels. Morels thrive in elm root systems, but when the tree begins to die from the disease, the morels are forced to fruit, producing the tasty fungus that is so prized.
