Ulmus americana 'Princeton' is a cultivar of American elm noted for its better than average resistance to Dutch Elm Disease, a fungal blight disease spread among elm trees by small bark beetles. American elm is a large, fast-growing, deciduous tree, which typically grows to 60-80' tall and produces toothed ovate leaves and rounded, papery samaras (winged seed cases) that it uses to reproduce. Ulmus americana flowers are small, and multicolored with yellow and red colors; though not necessarily showy due to the typical size of an elm tree, flowers bloom in the early spring.

Elms work wonderfully as yard or shade trees, and are keystone trees that act as hosts to a variety of insect residents, including butterfly larvae and many varieties of beetle, as well as providing a home and food to wildlife and birds; 'Princeton' is no exception and would make for a great addition to the yard or in a larger restoration project, and orange fall hues adds multi-season appeal.

Marylanders Plant Trees

From the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:

"We launched Marylanders Plant Trees in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State. The State cost of $20 per coupon is funded through a settlement from a major power generator for Clean Air Act violations, in partnership with the Office of the Attorney General, and Maryland’s participating tree vendors are generously absorbing the remaining $5.

Trees must be planted in the state of Maryland to qualify for $25 off coupon.
Wholesale customers do not qualify.
