Dutch Elm

Ulmus hollandica

A natural cross between Ulmus carpinifolia x Ulmus glabra, this species, like all Elms, is highly vulnerable to Dutch Elm Disease. Its introduction into North America resulted in the demise of native elm species. If healthy, the Dutch Elm can reach heights to 120 feet. Many plant breeders are attempting to produce resistant cultivars.
