American Elm vs Freedom Japanese Elm

Ulmus americana

Ulmus davidiana var. japonica Freedom

NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

American Elm
Freedom Japanese Elm

American Elm is fast growing, tall tree with a recognizable and pleasing shape.

It's well suited for urban environments because of its non-invasive roots and ability to grow on harsh sites (quite salt tolerant). American Elm develops a wide, dense canopy that provides shade for many city streets around North America.

Freedom Japanese Elm is great for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to maintain their trees as it doesn't drop many seeds. It has beautiful dark green foliage and is resistant to Dutch Elm Disease. Instead of having an irregular and broad-shaped crown as other Japanese Elms do, the Freedom Japenses Elm has an open crown.
