There used to be an elm in the hedgeline, about level with the polytunnel. It got Dutch elm disease. It was cut down and had to be craned out over the house that you cant see to the right of the top picture., about 30 years ago. The stump was left, about 3 ft across. It has sent up lots of elm shoots that are now part of the hedge, amongst the hawthorn.
