That was an early case of transporting a bug that caused trouble. Our grapes are resistant to an aphid borne grapevine root disease and when some of our vines were shipped to France for grafting experiments the aphids went along for the ride. Once there they destroyed the French vineyards. The solution was to graft their vines to American rootstock. So I guess you could say that fancy French wine is really just imported American wine.

I have a bunch of grapevines that seem to be very old.  Some with long brown air roots to the ground, I usually have a good crop of muscadines in late summer, have to beat the deer to them though, oh well with the hard life they live I guess  they deserve them more than me.

Hope you guys don't mind me jumping in at this point with a tree that is planted here in Central New York, but not native.

The leaves remind me of elm but the bark reminds me of sycamore.  Hmmm.

I would guess they were planted in response to the Dutch Elm Disease killing the native elms.

I had to ask a tree service guy what this was a few years ago and he said zelkova. Sometime I'll get photos of a tree in my neighbors' yard and see if WDH gets that one so quickly. You guys are good. I'm quite sure Jeffs'  tree is a Specimen Tree.

I was going to guess Chinese elm (Ulmus parvifolia) because of the bark. It's other name is Lacebark Elm, because of it's flaky look.  But then I wouldn't know the difference between that and a Zelkova, I suspect they are similar?

Jeff's tree is probably a grafted ornamental. 6ft of normal straight sapling with a contorted variety grafted on top? There is a similar tree still growing at a house I used to own (20+ years ago) It was big then, and it's still growing strong.

Here is one. This year I'm  getting to it before  the critters  I've never had a harvest because im always a day late and dollar short. This year i started picking them as soon as i saw them and hope they dry okay!  I think it is technically a tree.

I can't recall if this one has been done yet; this one is growing in central KY. Leaves were too high up to get ahold of.

It has white flowers in spring, brilliant red leaves in the fall, and used for honey.
