ONLY AVAILABLE BY CONTRACT GROW

American Elm
Golden Weeping Willow

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.

The Golden Weeping Willow is a cultivar with bright yellow twigs and an attractive weeping shape. It is one of the most popular willows, with high ornamental value.

The Golden Weeping Willow has glossy green foliage during the spring and summer months, then the leaves turn a golden-yellow in the fall. The brown bark is furrowed and the overhanging branches keep their yellow tone, so they also have significant winter interest.
