Elm Tree Description

Elm Tree

American Elm Tree - Ulmus americana is a Large, Tall, Flowering Tree.

This Tree is a North American Native who has a USDA hardy zone designation of 2 – 9. The habitat of the Tree stretches from Florida to Newfoundland west to North Dakota and Texas.

It is a tree mostly found in wetlands or other moist sites. The Tree can increase and can reach a height of 80 to 130 feet, with a width of around 60 and 120 feet. The top portion of this Tree has a vase-shaped, symmetrical crown with spreading branches adorning it.

Buyers have the luxury of selecting from a variety of available canopy sizes to suit their particular shading needs. The bark of this Tree is a dark grayish-brown color and contains broad ridges with diamond-shaped fissures.

 American Elm is Well Tolerant and Drought Resistant Shade, Street, and Lawn Tree

Each leaf has about 15 pairs of veins, with the two sides of the leaf's base being noticeably uneven. The surface of the leaf is green and usually smooth, while the undersides are paler and downy. These leaves typically turn into a light yellowish color in the fall. 

Although not noticeable to people, these tiny flowers attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Seed pods form as light-green wafer-like pockets, which eventually turn into a pale tan color. The Tree prefers the sun and is a long-lived, hardy tree.

These trees are tolerant of drought and urban conditions and do not have a high maintenance cost. They adapt quickly to extremes in soil PH, including moisture, heat, and wind tolerance. Buy here online Tree 

It is a tall tree that yields flowers during the Spring and ample foliage in the Summer and Fall months. When the Tree reaches full maturity, its maximum height can be as tall as 130 feet, but more commonly seen are maximum heights ranging between 60 to 80 feet.  

This Tree is best grown in USDA Growing 2-9 and reaches a maximum spread of up to 70 feet in peak growth conditions. Its first blooming period occurs between the mid-to-late Spring months of March and April.

Blooms of the Tree are noted for their distinctive red-green tinge. The Tree is very well-tolerant to a wide variety of environmental conditions and is well-known for its ability to stay healthy during droughts. 

The Tree grows best with direct exposure to sunlight, though it is well-adapted to partially shaded conditions. Furthermore, the Tree is very well-adapted to both wet and dry growing conditions and is also frequently grown in urban environments. 

Leaves are commonly elliptical and reach full maturity between April in May. The Tree can be used for a shade tree, street tree, and lawn tree.
