4. Pruning plastic in a timely manner. Strong Siberian elm sprout, and the third leader is fast. If not pruned, the pile will lose its ornamental value. Pruning can be done in the fall.

Maintain a good elm tree shape and trim Siberian elm often. The growth ability of Siberian elm is extremely strong. If not pruned, the pile scene will lose its ornamental value. Pruning can be done in the fall. First cut off useless branches, diseased branches, and then according to the shape or shape of the body after the pruning.
Aphids and scale beetles are the most common insect pests in Siberian elm. When these two pests occur, dimethyl can be sprayed with 1000 times of dimethyl. Siberian elm can be used as a bonsai or as a patio ornament. But large stumps should be transplanted with soil, and in winter and spring before the bud leaves.

In summer, when the temperature is high, Siberian elm can dissipate heat through transpiration. At this time, if the branches are pruned in a large area, the normal regulation function of the elm will be destroyed. As the evaporation of the elm is reduced, the moisture in the soil is difficult to evaporate, which may lead to root rot or even death. So in the summer, in order to maintain normal growth of the Siberian elm, don't trim too much.
