The Allee Elm, part of the Chinese Elm Tree family, grows to be 60-75' tall with dark green deciduous foliage. This tree's broad canopy turns to a yellow-pink color in the fall. The Allee Elm Tree will look best when grown in moist, well drained, fertile soil but is widely adaptable to most soil types. It prefers to be grown in full sun but can tolerate light shade. The Ulmus Parvifolia, or Chinese Elm, is a perfect choice for a shade tree with its beautiful, exfoliating bark, low pruning maintenance and excellent resistance to Dutch elm disease.
