Resilient, Cold-Hardy, Classic Elm 

Why Prairie Expedition® Elm Trees

The Prairie Expedition ® Elm Tree, also known as the Lewis and Clark Elm, is an excellent, cold-hardy tree! Its resistance to Dutch Elm Disease makes it a sturdy and tough choice for planting.

Developed from a parent American Elm that was the lone survivor of Dutch Elm, this tree is guaranteed to be long-lasting and enjoyed for years to come. Plus, it’s also tolerant of most soil types, making this a relatively easy tree to care for.

With its classic cathedral, umbrella form, the lovely shape of this tree will transform any space! You can even spot some small, green flowers amongst the green leaves in spring. In fall, the leaves change to a stunning yellow. 

If you’re hoping to add some greenery to a park, boulevard, or other open space where larger trees are desired, the Prairie Expedition® Elm is very tolerant of urban pollution! Plus, this tree is adaptable to most weather, including dry conditions and even some standing water. With proper care, it can live to be 100 years or older!

If you’re eager to add a resilient shade tree to your space, order the Prairie Expedition® Elm Tree today!
