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.
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.
