Wych Elm

Wych Elm

 

Ulmus glabra

With a leaf that is rough to the touch, and confusingly like a Hazel leaf in appearance, the Wych Elm or Scottish Elm is Britains only truely native Elm

A large native tree which usually develops a dome-shaped crown, weeping a bit towards the outside. Usually covered in seed by mid-May, it reproduces itself that way, unlike other Elms which do it vegetatively.
