  • Excellent Dutch Elm Disease Resistance

Take a break from the various chemicals used on trees with the USDA Organic Princeton Elm (Ulmus americana 'Princeton'). It has all the same characteristics we know and love of the regular Princeton Elm with an especially green twist.

The term organic gets to be added to plants that follow the United States Department of Agriculture's guidelines. In this case, these trees were grown in soils approved by their board and weren't subject to any fertilizers or pesticides while growing.

This deciduous tree was found on a street in New Jersey during a time when everyone had thought Elm trees were long gone due to Dutch Elm Disease. Luckily, this variety is quite resistant to the harmful disease!

As spring lengthens the days and warms the air, this elm unfurls luscious green foliage on its dense upward-facing branches.

It continues its magnificent display of color all through summer. Then green turns to yellow in a brilliant show before retiring for the coldest parts of the year.

Mix with red maples and evergreens to complete the perfect fall color palette. Otherwise, plant by itself as a single specimen in your backyard. It'll provide shade for generations to come.

Nothing seems to bother this elm much at all. It'll weather poor soil quality, salt, urban pollution, and even wet conditions.

For the healthiest tree, plant in full sun and well drained soils. You might also consider mulching around the base to prevent stress during dry times.

Take a trip to the more natural side of gardening by adding a USDA Organic Princeton Elm to your garden. Order yours soon before they're gone!
