‘Door Knocker’ Elm

Truetimber was honored to work on this remarkable American elm tree that has been reaching for at least 150 years to knock on the door of this house on Three Chopt Road. The 55-foot long door-knocking limb is hard to appreciate from the road, where it is screened from view by the lower landscape, but the rest of the canopy can be very much appreciated if you are walking or driving past the Three Chopt Roadd entrance to the Country Club of Virginia.

Remarkable for: size, age, and reach
6-foot diameter at breast height
70-80 ft tall and 70-80 ft wide
