Note: Rock elm, once plentiful in our area, almost all disappeared due to harvesting for ship building, construction and furniture making. Moderately fast growing, they live for at least 125 yrs. and grow single, straight trunks 15-25 metres tall. Like other elms, they succumb to Dutch elm disease but are hardier.
