New Elms being planted out.

Here are some of our special resistant LUTECE elms about to be planted out in Totland. West Wight has suffered dreadfully from the renewed outbreaks of DED since 1995 and we're keen to do what we can to restore an elm component to the landscape. There's still plenty of elm at a lower level in hedges and as suckers from felled or dead taller trees but there are almost none left as field and hedgerow trees. These are alongside One Horse Field (a Gift to nature Project).
