- 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.
