Varieties of Elm Trees - Ulmus Species

Large Elm Trees used to be a common sight across Britain before the advent of Dutch Elm Disease, which destroyed almost all of the native Elms, leaving only a few small pockets of survivors. The disease and the beetles that carry it are Asian in origin. You can read more about Dutch Elm Disease here.

  • Lobel Elm: Upright tree with goblet shaped canopy. It has high resistance to Dutch Elm Disease, but it's not immune.
  • Sapporo Autumn Gold Elm: A vigorous, medium sized tree. It has high resistance to Dutch Elm Disease, but it's not immune.
  • Dutch Elm: This hybrid is actually a native tree that occurs naturally when the English Elm & Wych Elm cross-breed. Very susceptible to Dutch Elm Disease.
  • Wych Elm: This hardy native tree is susceptible to Dutch Elm Disease, but the beetles that carry it find it less attractive than other Elm species. It is suitable for hedges; if these are kept at a height of less than 8 metres, they should not be attacked by the beetles.
