Why is my Drake Elm different?
Trees located Central Florida. I have two Drake Elm trees in my back yard that are 3 years old. No other trees. My neighbors across the street have a single drake elm in their front yard. Their tree is probably 11 years old. Their tree retains its leaves until way into the winter. My trees start losing their leaves at the first cold spell. Landscapers kept telling me we had the same trees, but by the way the trees acted I thought they were mistaken. Why does their tree retain its leaves so long and mine start loosing leaves at the first hint of cold weather?
