Siberian Elm
Brandon Elm

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.

Note: Due to it's increasingly controversial reputation for being invasive in warmer climates, we are no longer planning to grow this species for retail purchase.

Brandon Elm is a hardy and adaptable tree. Its dark green foliage turns brilliant gold in the fall.

This cultivar of the American Elm is long-lived and fast growing. Due to its smaller and more compact form than its cousin, the American Elm, Brandon Elm it is often preferred for home landscapes where it can command the extra money required to propagate it.

TreeTime.ca has no plans to produce this tree in the near future.
