Zelkova

Zelkova serrata ‘Village Green’

The Zelkova has been planted in many areas as a replacement for the American Elm because it has a similar vase shape and is resistant to many diseases and pests, most notably Dutch Elm disease. This native of Japan makes a beautiful landscape tree with its good foliage, interesting shape and handsome bark. It is a fine street tree although it must be kept away from telephone wires due to its ultimate height of 130 feet.
