Elm Trees (Ulmus Species)
We have been cultivating a batch of disease-resistant English elm trees for over 20 years, propagated from cuttings of four elm tree survivors found in the Eighties. The first batch of English Elm trees have finally been released and are available to buy online at our tree nursery in Essex.
Two of the original trees are still in full leaf, and although it would be wrong to describe the new trees as immune, they certainly have a very high resistance to the disease.
Dutch elm disease was responsible for wiping out more than 90 per cent of the elm tree population during the 70's and 80's.
The English elm tree is a magnificent tree, which can grow to nearly 200ft. The English elm was, along with the oak, the very symbol of our green and pleasant land so please help us replace the English Elm back to where it rightfully belongs in our beautiful countryside!
The elm trees at our tree nursery are now available in various sizes.
