Scientific Name for Elm: Ulmus
The American Elm is the state tree of North Dakota and Massachusetts.
Elm trees produce a one-seeded fruit, called a samara. It has wings that allow it to be carried by the wind to a new location to root and grow.
Dutch Elm Disease was named after the 7 women scientists from Holland who first identified Dutch Elm Disease.
North American Settlers named the Elm Tree the "Lady of the Forest".
Cavity dwellers, such as woodpeckers, chickadees, squirrels, and raccoons often find homes in elm trees.
Elm Tree Problems, Facts & Disease Info on Elm Trees
Until the arrival of the Dutch Elm Disease, the beautiful elm tree was used as a landscape tree throughout the temperate areas of much of North America. The elms found on this continent are a mixture of native and imported varieties.
Elm trees are commonly infected with a fungal disease spread by the elm bark beetle. Dutch Elm Disease has wiped out millions of Elm trees worldwide.
All elm trees are deciduous trees. Elm leaves are oval shape with a tooth edge. The seeds, technically called samaras, have one smooth or hairy wing. The elm wood has long been prized by furniture and piano makers for its strength, weight and toughness.
Due to the Dutch Elm tree Disease, a fungus spread by elm bark beetles, the elm is much less popular as a landscape tree now than was once the case.
However, thanks to new research, a disease resistant elm tree variety has been developed that may restore the stately elm to its rightful place in our urban landscapes.
