Elm trees are part of the Ulmus genus in the Ulmaceae family.  These beautiful majestic trees of great age of European or North American original have recently been killed by Dutch elm disease which is caused by a microfungus spread by bark beetles.  The fungus blocks the flow of water in the trunk resulting in the death of the tree within a few years.  Some younger trees have survived the disease.

Trees can grow to be up to 35 metres tall with thick trunks of 175 cm in diameter.  Bark is a dark greyish-brown with deep connecting ridges.  Leaves are dark green and oval-shaped with a pointed end about 10-15 centimeters long.

Elms trees have no branches until halfway up their trunk.  The branches then fan out and give the tree an umbrella shape.

 

American Elm  [Ulmus americana]

This species of Elm is also known as the "White, Grey, Soft, Swamp or Water Elm".  Trees reach heights of 18-24 meters.

Note the spindle leaf galls that appear on the leaves above and below.  These bumps and wart-like deformations are the result of the leaf's reaction to insects and mites feeding on them.  Although unslightly, these are mere irritations and will not harm the tree.  The insects do not live inside these galls and have most likely moved on by now.  Galls may, however, cause early leaf drop.

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
