The New Harmony American Elm is almost certainly the best possible variety of our iconic American elm tree that you can choose. It is a large, fast-growing tree that will reach 65 feet tall in time, adding 3 feet a year while young. It won the National Elm Trials, proving incredibly resistant to disease, as well as having the ideal vase-shaped form that makes American elm so special. The glossy, dark-green leaves turn wonderful shades of pure gold in fall, and the seeds which fall in early summer are not a significant litter problem. Grow it as a shade tree on a large lawn, as an avenue or at the edges of woodlands.

  • Classic shade and avenue tree of American cities
  • Tall and statuesque, with a vase-shaped crown
  • Highly resistant to the deadly Dutch Elm Disease
  • Very adaptable to winter cold, humid summers and poor soil
  • Fast growing – at least 3 feet a year once established

Plant the New Harmony American Elm in full sun or partial shade, in any soil, from wet to dry, from acid to alkaline, and from sand to clay. It tolerates poor soils, urban pollution and even de-icing salt. Hardy almost everywhere, it is close to 100% resistant to Dutch Elm Disease and rarely has any other problems. Train to a single leading stem for as long as possible, and remove lower branches gradually and early, to avoid scarring.
