Oh I was okay using it on my legs, it was the underarms that got me. :130:

Guys, guys, guys....

You guys are, um, barking up the wrong tree. The awful, invasive, seed spewing mess that is the Siberian Elm (Ulmus pumila) is what should earn your unending hatred, not the true Chinese Elm (Ulmus parvifolia). Yes, I know it's a common misnomer. The Chinese Elm is a nice bonsai tree that doesn't deserve to have its name dragged through the mud.

I had forgotten all about it - Great memory there, QK!

I'd be happy if they all up and died.

I'm getting a tree of heaven starting to sprout in my garden. The only thing I can figure is a root left alive from when we cut down the one by our house - 10 or so years ago. This year, it's popping up everywhere. :-X
