SP9733 : Dead Elms

taken 12 years ago, near to Eversholt, Bedfordshire, Great Britain

Dead Elms
Dead Elms
A sad sight, a stand of dead elm trees, victims of Dutch Elm Disease. However as a species the Elm is not giving up, it continues to reproduce asexually by suckering. It produces vigorously grown young trees that live 20 or so years, but before they reach maturity the disease gets them - however by this time they themselves have sent out suckers. Opposite these dead trees were some SP9733 : Live Elms !
