Mr. Burbank's Hybrid Elm
This interesting tree was grown from a cutting brought from Massachusetts by Mr. Burbank, and grafted on the roots of a California elm. The parent tree was a hybrid elm of extraordinary size. The tree here shown, which stands beside Mr. Burbank's "Old Homestead" at Santa Rosa, has grown with astonishing rapidity. Its unique history gives it altogether exceptional interest.
