This elm species, also known as the cork elm due to corky ridges on branches, is probably the least typical in form. Rather than
branching out into large co-dominant limbs, the trunk remains distinct almost to the top of the tree. The crown is cylindrical in shape and can grow to approximately 25m in
height. A relatively rare tree, it occurs mainly in the US Midwest. The leaves are 5-10 cm long and hairy on the underside.
