Frontier Elm question

notesJuly 11, 2010

Planted one last year, and it's doing great.

More than great, actually.

A few branches are drooping almost to the ground.

Should I prop them up somehow, or just leave them alone?

Thanks

I would prune back the branch part way (to a leaf node), so that it can hold itself up.....this way, you will get a good structured tree as it matures.....
