Pictures of precious wood
Elm is a hardwood of the ever-green elm tree which has covered Central Europe since more than 10 million years. The Elm-tree reaches a height of up to 35 meters. Due to a fungal disease (elm disease), which inhibits the transport of water in the tree - except for the white elm - the elm nowadays is very threatened.
The wood has a very decorative part reddish-brown, but rather brown grain, which can have a beautiful mirror. Elm dries poorly and is easily broken, but only slightly disappearing. It is a very hard wood, which can be cut and grinded well.
