Lost elms of the Borders
A lost landscape .. old elms that were felled 40 years ago having succumbed to Dutch Elm disease. How different the landscape would have looked with these huge trees along the head rigs - and not all that long ago either. We managed to save a few butts throughout the Borders ( from the flames) for furniture and in fact still making with some boards. It is such a beautiful timber to use and when you do see one In full flower such a beautiful tree to wonder at.

Is that middle picture a felled elm with a younger elm growing up and through the stump?
