(Ulmus parviflora)
A medium sized tree, 40’-50’, with a round or oval crown, the lacebark elm has beautiful exfoliating bark and casts light, dappled shade. Drought-tolerant and tough, it makes a good street or shade tree; does need some staking to keep it straight while it gets established. Check out this handsome row of lacebark elms along Preston Road in front of St. Mark’s School.
