New Harmony American Elm from Story Landscaping

August 26, 2019

Order a New Harmony American Elm for your home or business from Story Landscaping.  A highly dutch elm disease resistant American Elm that was tested by the U.S. National Arboretum. A very urban savvy tree that exhibits the old American Elm form. Upright, vast shaped tree with an arching form. Dark green leaves turn yellow in fall. 60' x 60'. Zone 4.

 Preparation

  • Elms prefer full sun or partial shade and moist, well-drained fertile soil. They adapt to wet or dry soil as well.

  • They make good street trees because they tolerate urban conditions, but keep in mind than planting an elm tree near sidewalks can lead to cracks and raised areas.

  • You can plant container-grown trees any time of year. Bare root, balled and burlapped (B&B) elms are best planted in spring or late fall.

  • Don’t amend the soil in the hole at planting time unless it is very poor. Add a little compost to the fill dirt for poor soils.

  • Wait until next spring to fertilize an elm tree.

  • Mulch the tree immediately after planting. Mulch helps the soil hold moisture and reduces competition from weeds.
