Disease Resistant Elm
Name: Jan S.
Hello, I would like to talk our town into planting elm
trees again. Is there such a thing as a disease resistant Elm (I saw a
site from France with "Resista Sapporo Autumn Gold") or other type of
elm your help is appreciated.

Several species of Asian elms are resistant to Dutch elm disease, but are
generally smaller, with smaller leaves than American elms, and thus
considered less attractive as street trees. Native slippery elms are fairly
resistant, and look much like American elms, but do not attain the majestic
size and shape of Americans. A great deal of research has been done on
developing disease resistant American elms.
