Ulmus Glabra Hedging

Wych Elm, Ulmus glabra, is a hardy native Elm that can be used as a hedge plant on fertile, damp soils, although it isn't suitable for waterlogged sites. When it is clipped as a hedge, it will not attract Elm Bark Beetles.
Wych Elm will reach 30 metres if it grows freely as a tree.
Browse all of our other varieties of Elm trees for sale. Alternatively, see our selection of native hedging plants or view our full range of hedging.

Barerootplants are only delivered during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Wych Elm hedge:
Plant at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.

A very hardy, large native tree. Grown as a tree, it tends to have a short trunk that breaks up into large branches a couple of metres above the ground. These will be fairly upright with spreading side branches, so mature trees are often as wide as they are tall. Wych Elm can also be clipped as a hedge, which looks great in summer with its lush, big serrated leaves.

Did You Know?

Ulmus glabra is native from Scotland to Russia and is found in the Alps, especially around Switzerland. The Gaelic name for it Leam and the Romans called Loch Lomond "Leamanonius Lacus", which means Lake of the Elms. The timber is so resistant to rotting that water pipes were once made from it. The leaves are good fodder for animals.
