Learn at Lunch Webinar: Elms Are Back!
Date: Feb. 24, 2015
Time: 12 pm MST
Speaker: Dr. Bruce R. Fraedrich, Vice President of Research at Bartlett Tree Experts
Elms were once the dominant shade and street tree throughout the majority of the United States but the introduction of Dutch elm disease changed that. Elms have been seldom planted in urban landscape in the last fifty years. However, through intensive breeding and selection work, there are many desirable disease resistant and tolerant elms that are now commercially available. This presentation will explore options for commercially available elm species and cultivar selections that are suitable for the landscape. The presentation will include a discussion of species/cultivar susceptibility to Dutch elm disease, elm yellows and other pests.
