Elm Tree (Ulmus spp. )

This tall, popular much-loved tree has beautiful lustrous green leaves throughout the summer that change to a lovely shade of yellow in the fall. Elms are very tall and make enjoyable shade trees for an urban or rural yard. Dutch elm disease has been fatal to many elm trees in the past and with new Elm varieties on the market, saving the Elm trees will bring back a part of American history that has been missing from our landscapes. Planting Elms are essential to the conservation of trees and to many butterflies that rely on them as a food source.
