  Quick Elm Facts

Elm leaves are deciduous and alternate in two rows along the shoot.  The shape is oval and tapers towards a point.  The edge is ragged and saw-toothed and veins are prominent.  The size is dependent on the species, but the leaves of an American elm are usually between 10 and 15 cm in length.

Notice the uneven base on each leaf.  This characteristic is common in elms and is a good thing to look for.
