The elm half-burl, also known as ulme, belongs to the family of elm plants and is common in North America, Europe and Asia. In German, by the way, the wood of the elms is referred to as elm. The veneer image of the elm burl is determined by mainly arranged in groups of grain cores, which are gently encased by wavy and circular lines. The extremely rare veneer is used in the upscale furnishing sector – especially for furniture. Due to the progressive death of elms, which is caused by a fungus spread by the small and large elm splinter beetle, the veneer of the armourfrome from European origin is only available to a limited extent.
