The American or White elm is the largest species of elm.  Due to its graceful form and size, it was an extremely popular urban tree before the spread of Dutch elm disease.  Once found mostly in eastern North America, remaining populations of mature American elms are concentrated in the American Midwest and Canadian Prairies.
