Wych Elm - Ulmus glubra

The Wych Elm is a UK native elm tree mainly found in north and west Britain.  Unlike the English Elm, Wych Elm reproduces mostly by seed rather than suckers, so it has a good range of genetic diversity and therefore a greater resistant to Dutch elm disease.  

Wych Elm can grow to 30m and flourishes on hillsides and near the sea and also in polluted atmospheres. It is especially found near flowing water.

The elm is used for the keels of boats and harbour work and is a popular wood for joinery and cabinet making.

The current height of our Wych Elm trees is approximately 20-40cm and they can be planted out all year round.
