Tree of the Quarter

americanelm

At the foot of the County Courthouse, an American Elm grows under amazing conditions. American Elms are notorious for their beautiful vase shape and used to line streets across the eastern United States. Unfortunately, Dutch Elm Disease has taken out most of these glorious trees. The beautiful specimen in front of the Courthouse has held up amid traffic, pavement, and a few accidents. Elms can grow to 90 feet tall and mature specimens have downward growing branches. The alternate leaves have teeth and are usually 3-5 inches long. Small pink flowers can be seen in the spring and are following by one-half inch long flat fruit in the summer which are devoured by birds and other wildlife. Extensive breeding programs have developed disease-resistant American Elms which are now available commercially.
