Wych Elm (Ulmas Glabra)

Wych Elm (Ulmas Glabra) is a hardy native Elm that can be used as a hedge plant. As a hedge Wych Elm can be clipped which looks great in summer with its lush, big serrated leaves, in autumn turning distinctive yellow. Wych elm is a very hardy, large native tree, which if it grows freely will reach 30 metres in height. It is reproduced by seed and not by suckering so it is more resistant to Dutch elm disease than English elm. In areas where the disease is no longer prevalent planting may be worthwhile again. The timber from the Wych Elm (Ulmas Glabra) is stronger than oak and there is now a serious shortage of it. Trees tolerate exposure to cold, air pollution and sea winds pretty well. Most lowlands soils suit it very well and it also grows some way up Scottish mountains sides. Unlike English elm this species is a British native.
