An American tradition! 

If you love elm trees then you are in good company. The love of elms might even be in your DNA. The American love affair with elms goes all the way back to the birth of our nation.

 In 1765 the Sons of Liberty used the famed “Liberty Tree” as the rallying place to protest the much hated Stamp Act.

 That tree was an elm.

 In 1826 President John Quincy Adams planted a tree at the White House to honor Thomas Jefferson.

 That tree was an elm.

 In the 21st Century a visionary gardener planted a tree in their yard and forever changed the face of their neighborhood.

 That tree was an elm. That gardener is you!

Nature Hills is so pleased to offer the New Harmony Elm (Ulmus americana 'New Harmony') to the market this year. Not only does this beautiful tree carry on the great American tradition of elms in our cities and gardens, but it is super resistant to the strains of disease that have decimated elms in the past century.

This tree will grow to be 70’ high and 70’ wide at maturity. Its hardiness is evidenced by the sheer number of streets named after this tree used to line them – Elm Street. (We’ll bet that your town has one, too!) They are great because they adapt to just about anywhere they have been introduced in the US and they can withstand heavy snow, prolonged drought and even being banged up by passing cars! We know that it will excel in your garden.

 Be a part of American history. Order your New Harmony Elm from us today!
