I just adore the last picture of the field elm. It's such a relief to see a subtle younger looking tree, instead of old looking trees with fat trunks. Very nice balance between the tender trunk and crown.

Beautiful. I especially like the grouping of trees.

Walter,
Have the leaves already fallen off these trees, or have you removed the leaves. What is the average night-time low temperature where you are?

I see the Japanese Maple below has changed color already.

Thanks,
Brian

All these trees have proamturely lost most of their leaves. The reason was mostly a very hot period wand they got some draught. This will not really harm a healthy tree. They will be fine. I have removed the few leaves which were left.
The maple has fall coolr because it was repoted recnetly. Night tmeperatures are not even close to freezing yet. They will be very soon. Fall colors here will appear within the next ten days.
