• Ulmus lutece - Disease resistant Elm Tree 18/20cm girth

Ulmus lutece - Disease resistant Elm Tree 18/20cm girth

Ulmus lutece has been cultivated for its resistance to Dutch Elm disease, and has certainly proven to be. This tree can be planted with confidence where longevity is required. Ulmus lutece is a large tree with an oval crown when young becoming round with age, the branches are somewhat irregular making a dense tree not unlike an Oak. This Elm has light to mid green leaves which are oval and have serrated edges and with its fast growth rate  will soon provide something substantial to look at.  Ulmus Lutece fits nicely into our plan to return the elm tree to the landscapes of the UK.

This is a great tree for larger gardens, parks and woodlands with great presence when mature.

If the tree size you require is not listed please call for current availability and delivery options as we are always updating the stock we have for sale at our tree nursery in Essex.
