CARNATION – At first glance, the elm doesn’t look like a tree at all, but rather like a giant pile of green leaves. But when one steps inside – yes, inside – by way of a “door” through the branches, the magnificence of the century-old treasure is displayed in all its verdant glory. Dappled sunlight sifting through the leaves reveals a unique cave-like interior. Overhead, roots appear to be growing above the trunk, supported by masses of convoluted branches. Contorted limbs and the deep green leaves create the ceiling and sides, which reach almost to the ground.
