What to do with Siberian Elm
I thought I liked this tree, but it was so villified under the least favorite tree. I did find out that there were many seeds to be picked, but it has been at my new house for years (and the previous owners were not the greatest caretakers). It has NOT gotten out of hand.
Here's the problem. If I trim much of the branches back, it will deprive my garden of much needed shade. I'm planning to put a Japanese Maple underneath it as well as some other shade loving plants... C. Japonicas..
Should I just leave it as is for now until I figure out a enclosure or some other shade solution. It is on the fence line on my neighbor's side.
