Ulmus americana ‘Princeton’

Princeton Elm

A vase-shaped tree with a broad, rounded crown and dark green leaves. Excellent resistance to Dutch Elm disease. The fall color is yellow. It grows best in full sun in an average, medium moisture, well-drained soil. It may be used as a shade tree, in the lawn, or as a street tree where space allows. The species is native to eastern and central North America.

Selected by Princeton Nursery of New Jersey for form prior to the advent of Dutch Elm Disease. Happily, it turned out to be tolerant. It was recently chosen to replace trees killed by disease near the White House.
