Siberian Elm

Ginkgo is medium sized deciduous tree with beautifully fan shaped leaves which develop a clear yellow fall color. Its form is pyramidal, broadening with age and becoming picturesque.

Siberian Elm is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree. It has a similar form to American Elm, but smaller, with a more pyramidal habit and shorter lifespan. It is also more resistant to Dutch Elm disease and is very salt tolerant.

Siberian Elm was grown as shelterbelts in the prairies after the Dustbowl disasters, where its rapid growth and tolerance for drought and cold initially made it a great success. It is an excellent shade tree.
