• The Princeton Elm is a medium to large deciduous tree, typically growing to 60-80’ (less frequently to 130’) tall with a vase-shaped, broad-rounded crown.
  • It is native to eastern and central North America.
  • Insignificant small green flowers appear in spring before the foliage emerges.
  • Flowers give way to single-seeded wafer-like samaras (each tiny seed is surrounded by a flattened oval-rounded papery wing).
  • Seeds mature in April-May as the leaves reach full size.
  • Rough-textured, ovate-elliptic, dark green leaves (to 6” long) have toothed margins and asymetrical bases.
  • Leaves typically turn an undistinguished yellow in fall.
