Online Talk From Farmer Restoring Our Area’s Lost Elm Trees

There’s an online talk on Monday, with a local farmer who is trying to replace elm trees that succumbed to Dutch elm disease in the 1970s.

Peter Shallcross has been planting a variety which is resistant to the fungus that wiped out an estimated 90% of English elm trees.

Peter tells us about the important qualities of elm. And he shares an unusual old wife’s tale that warns what you should never do near an elm.
