The Pioneer Elm, Ulmus 'Pioneer', is a USDA introduction that is the result of a cross between Ulmus glabra and Ulmus carpinifolia in their quest to breed Dutch Elm disease resistant elms!
It is a fast growing tree, with a dense full head and glossy green foliage that turns yellow in autumn. Pioneer Elm is distinguished by a dense, globular crown casting a heavy shade.
Elms are adaptable to a wide variety of soil conditions and come in graceful, vase-shaped and weeping forms. Elms prefer full sun and adapt easily to extremes in pH, moisture, wind and heat. The aggressive roots can probably break sidewalks and raise pavement if trees are improperly located.
The Pioneer Elm has glossy dark green leaves with a dense canopy, is extremely fast growing, and resistant to Dutch elm disease and Elm Yellow.
This Elm can be used as a street tree or as a large shade tree for larger properties; very adaptable to adverse conditions!
