Ulmus americana, often known as the American Elm, is a deciduous tree native to North Carolina with a trunk diameter of 2 to 5 feet and a height of 80 to 100 feet. The leaves are alternating, with a serrated edge and an uneven base. The bark is ashy grey with diamond-shaped cracks that divide flat-topped ridges. Small blooms develop in clusters of three to five in late winter. A flattened samara with a hairy border is produced by the tree. The tree thrives in nutrient-rich soils. The tree has a thin crown and a long, clean bole when planted in a thick forest.
