Botanical Name Ulmus americana
Description Great tree for use as a street planting or residential use. It's yellow fall leaf color is very nice, but variation does occur from year to year. 60-80'High x 40'Wide at maturity on average with a high canopy. A medium to fast growing species shade tree and should be planted more frequently than it is. American Elms in areas unaffected by the DED = Dutch Elm Disease have been around for several hundred years. Best example of the species WAS the Sauble Elm. It was in Ontario, Canada and reached a height of 140' with a 6.5'diameter and was still grow strong until the Homo sapien introduced DED found it. It succumbed shortly there after as most through the states did and was felled in 1968. The tree-ring count established that it had germinated in 1701. 267 years old before white man came along. The same story can be told about the American Chestnut, Carolina Parakeet, Passenger Pigeon, Red Wolf, Grey Wolf, Ocelot, Margay, Jaguarundi, Jaguar, Cougar, Western and Woods Bison and The Indigenous People of The First Nation.
