This tree has an upright, spreading shape and is a large, broadleaf deciduous tree with a graceful vase shape similar to American elm.

Elms prefer full sun and adapt easily to extremes in pH, moisture, wind and heat. They do prefer well-drained, sandy, loamy or clay soils.
The aggressive roots can probably break sidewalks and raise pavement if trees are improperly located. The Accolade Elm has an excellent disease and pest resistance, drought tolerance, and good yellow fall color. It has a rapid growth rate and adaptability to urban conditions.
