Aug 09, NORRIS, Tenn. (WATE) - Norris is a designated Tree City U.S.A. and the people who live there said the historic elm tree in the arboretum was a lot more than just another tree. Nearly everyone WATE. May 21, Siberian elm is almost a weed down on the plains, easy to come by. But the American elm I dealt with years ago in upstate NY was (and is) surrounded by other far better fuels.
Sugar Maple is the dominant tree in the woods there, and that's what I prefer to burn. Elm Tree Pruning.
Elm trees should be trained to grow with a center leader. Tree pruning is recommended to preserve or improve the elm tree structure, vigor and life-span. Tree pruning can reduce specific defects or structural problems in an elm tree to greatly lessen the risk of stumpmulching.barted Reading Time: 5 mins.
