Upright Elm Tree – A fantastic larger upright tree that has proven to be a real winner this hot dry summer in the south. It has kept its lovely dark green foliage and not shown any signs of drought stress. An excellent street or avenue tree that also tolerates salt winds – the tree of choice for hot/dry areas as well as coastal!
Tree avenues of the lovely Upright Elm shown in Wanaka above and Pegasus, Canterbury below. Shown growing fantastically well in the hot and dry and also close to coastal.
Looking great available now as follows…
