The recent warm spell afforded us a rare opportunity – elm pruning at the beginning of the season. You see, the rules of elm pruning are pretty strict, to prevent the spread of Dutch Elm Disease. So between April 1st and July 31st – it is forbidden to prune elm trees (removal is still allowed)
Normally we are still in the thick of winter at the end of March and most people are still trying to stay warm!
But this year! What a great winter! And the lovely warm spell!
