Large Leaf Linden
Siberian Elm

Large Leaf Linden is a tall, deciduous tree native to Europe. Large Leaf Linden features oblong leaves that turn from yellow-green to brilliant yellow in the fall. Large Leaf Linden is ideal as a shade or ornamental tree in a larger yard.

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.
