I have a juvenile Elm Tree that failed to leaf out this Spring. There are shoots coming up all over the ground around the tree though. I checked some of the branches, and found no evidence of striping or beetle damage. The branches were green and alive. Today I went to the sheltered side of the tree next to my fence line and was shocked to see hundreds of tiny pin prick type holes all over the trunk and main branches. There were little brown ants covering the bark. This year, I have also noticed a huge population of mushrooms that came up only under this tree. Are these issues connected? And will corn meal really get rid of the ants? I do not want to use any chemicals as I have herbs growing close to that tree. Can I save my tree? I've gotten rather fond of it and would really love to keep it.
