Old Elm tree in Spreenhagen

White elm - Ulmus laevis - girth 578 cm (2018)

Vital old elm torso with small secondary crown. In the 1990s, the crown of the tree was trimmed down to five short crown branches and then in 2007, two of these five remaining branches were trimmed even further. In the years thereafter until today, however, a dense crown has formed again. The trunk is partially hollow at the base and at the strong roots.
