How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
General description of Lobel Elm trees:
A medium sized, upright tree with a mature canopy just 6-7 metres wide. The main branches grow stiffly upright with short, dense laternal branches. The leaves are matt green with a serrated edge. Despite the tight crown of the tree, it develops a widely spreading root system as it ages which is useful for holding loose soil together.
History & uses of Ulmus Lobel:
The Lobel Elm has high resistance to Dutch Elm disease, but cannot be considered immune. It was extensively planted around Portsmouth in the 1980's and so far the trees have remained healthy.
