Characteristics of American Elm
American Elm can be light and medium reddish brown, sometimes with darker streaks. Grain is interlocked, with a somewhat coarse, uneven texture that looks like feathers.
American Elm was once one of the largest and most prevalent of the North American Elm species, preferred as an ideal shade tree for urban roadsides. Large and mature American Elms are no longer common. They have been ravaged by Dutch Elm Disease, a fungus introduced in the U.S. in the 1920s by infected elm logs from Europe.
