Ulmus americana

Commonly known as American elm, is a stately deciduous tree native to North America. Characterized by its iconic vase-shaped canopy, it provides ample shade with serrated, elliptical leaves. American elm has a long history as a beloved street and park tree, but its population has faced challenges due to Dutch elm disease. However, disease-resistant cultivars are helping to revive its popularity. Adaptable to various soils, this majestic tree continues to be appreciated for its grandeur, especially in larger landscapes, urban areas, and along avenues.
