What kind of trees are these?

Ryan Calhoun on October 11, 2007

I'm not sure of these trees. I haven't counted and named all of them yet! But my guess is elm. I'll take a closer look at the bark to be sure.

I'm praying now my elms don't reach that height!!! Maybe I've got a Siberian variety? ;) Slightly worried here since Dutch Elm disease is trying to take a foot hold in our city (so far they've got it in check but.......) and I dread the removal cost when that sad event happens.

Pam, I had a closer look. The three on the left (three trunks joined at the base) are northern red oak. The one on the right is a maple which has already shed all its leaves. I hope they come back next year. I think the shorter ones beyond that (which is all lit up) are some small elms. We don't have much problem with disease, but from time to time we do get colonies of tent caterpillars making big globby messes too high up to do much about.

Par de días sin visitarte Ryan y veo muchas fotos nuevas. Esta es muy bonita, precisamente lo que destacas en el título lo conseguiste muy bien en la foto. Saludos, Claudia.

Hello Ryan, your latest postings of tree photos are very beautiful. They still have most of their leaves like overhere. But it won't be too long and they'll be bare! Greetings, Anne

Thank you, Anne. Yes, I watch the trees every day to see if they will start to change, or if the leaves will start to fall. They're starting to fall slowly, but the trees don't look any different yet. Cheers, Ryan
