Ulmus parvifolia Lacebark Elm, Chinese Elm

The Lacebark Elm is a fast growing deciduous tree that can get 40-60′ in height at maturity with a 25-40′ spread. Ulmus parvifolia gets its name because it bark sheds and reveals orange-brown patches, giving the trunk a lacey appearance. Lacebark Elm has good resistance to Dutch Elm disease and is also heat and drought tolerant. The foliage is fine-textured, toothed, and glossy green. This tree has an almost weeping appearance at maturity. Ulmus parvifolia is also known as Chinese Elm but should not be confused with another Elm species which is inferior to this species.
