The American elm is easily distinguished by the ‘V’ shaped growing habit with a straight trunk that splits into many arched branches. This classic tree is found on many lane ways and older neighborhood boulevards. Their unusual branching habit provides ornamental value to the landscape. Golden leaves appear in the fall.
Do not plant under powerlines.
