About the event

Central and eastern English elms are the most diverse in Europe, perhaps because recolonization routes at the end of the Ice Age converged here and hybridization produced new forms. Previous books have included 1-8 species, plus sub-species, hybrids and varieties.

The latest flora (2018) names 62 British species, most of which are found in our area. They are distinctive in growth form, leaf shape, seed shape and in their associated insect species. Most still grow into large, handsome trees despite Dutch elm disease. This workshop will introduce elms, their history, ecology and associated wildlife and a new key to the 40-50 local species.
