I've got a chinese elm on my property currently. I hear a lot of bad things about these, how their root growth is a huge problem, for example.

Mine has been here for 10 years +, has not really grown much (I water it hardly at all), doesn't seem to be causing a lot of problems. I'm in a desert, and I expect the really hard soil and heat might inhibit growth potentially?

However, I'm in the process of water harvesting and really improving the soil, and I wonder if the Chinese Elm could become a problem with softer soil and more water in the soil. Anyone have any ideas of how this might go, or advice on the Chinese Elm and pros and cons?
 
Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
