NotesLocal residents tell me that this tree was planted in 1971 when the bungalows were built.  As children, they called it the umbrella tree and played inside the branch tent.  A mass of twisted branches branches in winter, splattered with pale green seed samaras in late spring, and clothed in dark green leaves that are rough to touch and have the characteristic Elm lop-sided bottom.  This cultivar of the Wych Elm was first discovered on the Camperdown estate near Dundee in Victorian times.  As it doesn't grow to be very tall, it is missed usually by the beetles that carry Dutch Elm Disease which fly above heights of 5m.  More about Camperdown Elm if you click here.info
