Dense, Fast Growing Privacy Tree

The Siberian Elm tree, ‘Ulmus pumila’, is the fastest growing deciduous tree we know of and the more you trim, the denser the hedge.

The Siberian Elm is a fast growing, hardy, and drought resistant tree when established. It is one of the first to leaf in the spring and one of the last to shed its leaves in the fall. It is also considered to be a great windbreak tree when planted in rows.

To use as a hedge, plant 10 to 15’ apart in the row. Siberian Elm has moderate water requirements until established. Best results are obtained when planted in well-drained soil in full sun.

It is very adaptable, often grows under adverse conditions. Siberian elm is resistant to Dutch elm disease. It provides excellent cover for wildlife.
