Description

 American Elm Tree - Ulmus americana

 

Folks looking to line their property with a big and beautiful deciduous shade or street tree for their front yards should undoubtedly consider the American Elm Tree. This tree is a North American Native who has a USDA hardy zone designation of 2 – 9. The habitat of the American elm stretches from Florida to Newfoundland west to North Dakota and Texas. It is a tree mostly found in wetlands or other moist sites. The American elm 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.

The leaves of the American Elm Tree are approximately 3 to 5 inches long and between 1 to 3 inches wide; they are coarse with doubly serrated margins.

Each leaf has about 15 pairs of veins, with the two sides of the leaf’s base being noticeably uneven. The surface of the elm 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.

The American Elm tree produces small and inconspicuous green flowers, which appear in drooping clusters in early spring.

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 American elm 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 American Elm Tree
