HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR CEDAR ELM TREES
The Cedar Elm (Ulmus crassifolia) is known by many names like: Fall Elm, Basket Elm, Scrub Elm, Lime Elm, Texas Elm, Southern Rock Elm, and Olmo. The Cedar elm is a large, rounded tree reaching heights of 50-70 ft. and up to 40-60 ft. wide growing 1.5' to 2.5' annually. Fun fact: the National Champion Cedar Elm was 94 feet tall near Oletha in Limestone County!
The Cedar Elm is the most common elm tree in Texas, distributed widely in East, South, and Central Texas. It is found near water systems, in solid stands on flatwoods, or on dry limestone hills. It also does well in heavy clay, compacted soils, and tolerates alkaline or salty soils.
The Cedar Elm is a popular landscape tree for its towering height and, limited maintenance requirement and shade canopy.
Give it full sun and a space to get 60 feet tall and 60 feet wide in good soil and in return it will provide summer shade and a golden yellow fall color show, all for very little care.
