A Nostalgic and Fast Growing Shade Tree

The American Elm is truly an American tree. The American Elm will grow nearly anywhere in Central and Eastern America. From the humid, hot landscapes of the Deep South to the cold, bitter temperatures of the Northern Plains and everywhere in between, this tree thrives.

Just plant it and watch it grow. The American Elm grows fast in any type of soil and environment. You can just plant this tree on a weekend and enjoy it for the rest of your life. With very little attention and care, your American Elm will grow 3-6 feet each year. From polluted urban neighborhoods with poor soil to pristine country landscapes, the American Elm survives.

Plant a tree for your family that they'll enjoy for generations. The American Elm will outlive you for centuries. Most American Elms live up to 300 years, so you'll be planting a tree that will live in your families' yard for longer than your great-grandkids will be around.

The American Elm is the perfect shade tree. With a grand, tall trunk and a gorgeous fountain of leaves and branches that canopy over into a rounded crown, your family will love sitting under the shade of the America Elm.

The thick leaves transition beautifully through the seasons. The leaves of the American Elm are large, shiny and a deep green that transforms into golden yellow in the fall. In the spring, small, subtle clusters of flowers appear and perfectly accent the strong, massive foliage.

You'll be mesmerized by the fascinating bark. The bark of the American Elm is captivating with a bouquet of shapes that meet together in a jigsaw-like fashion. Old leave scars give the appearance of a cat's face. Imagine a warm summer day with your family under the shade of your American Elm tree, picking out shapes in the bark like watching clouds transform in the sky.

Everyone wants a piece of nostalgia. Because it's the perfect tree for the American family, they sell quickly. Don't hesitate to bring back a piece of American history to your yard.
