My favorite tree died this year but in death she is still beautiful. She was around 70 to 80 years old and is a wild Chinese Elm, and lived in N.M.USA. My yard will never be the same after this tree, named Sue, will have to be cut down. Further down this page it is explained how these trees came to be here in the U.S. and the double edge sword they produce.
Cotton is growing in the fields in the foreground and the mountain range are called the Franklins. The Franklins are located in El Paso, Texas.
