Additional Information: Siberian Elm is native to eastern Siberia, northern China, and Turkestan. It is the hardiest of all the elms. It can tolerate cold winters and long periods of summer drought. A fast growing tree, it was introduced to the United States in the 1860s and planted throughout the Great Plains and the Midwest for windbreaks and shelterbelts. It reproduces readily via windborne seeds, and is now established in most of the United States and Canada. It is classified as a noxious weed in New Mexico, and most state weed boards advise against planting it because of its adaptability, high rate of germination and rapid growth allow it to quickly dominate areas such as roadsides and fence rows. This particular piece of Siberian Elm looks like it has tumors throughout but it is actually knots from the burl of the tree. 

Box Elder is a fast growing tree that was often planted as a shade tree and for windbreaks. The wood is plain but sometimes Box Elder produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured. The Box Elder Burl I use in my knives comes from a storm-damaged tree that was part of the original trees planted during the Mormon migration to Utah. This particular piece has lots of figure and provides a nice contrast to the Siberian Elm Burl.
