The typical shape of an American Elm, when properly maintained is that of a mushroom. A strong solid trunk pluming up and outward to a beautiful spred canapy.

The most common problem of the American Elm is that of the Scolytus beatle. These little insects burrow into the bark of the tree and lay their eggs which will cut off nutrients the tree needs to survive. This problem is often referred to as Dutch Elm Disease.
Most trees struck with this problem do not survive. It is recommended that if your tree has Dutch Elm Disease that it be reomved before the effects of the tiny beatles can spread to other such elm trees.
