Cedar Elm (Ulmus crassifolia)

Cedar Elm (Ulmus crassifolia)

This tree is widely found throughout central and southern Texas. It's dense habit provides excellent roosting and nest sites for songbirds as well as a dependable Fall food source. Cedar elm has small, shiny leaves which decompose rapidly and don't contribute to leaf litter. However, the tree has weak wood and seedlings can become a nuisance in irrigated flowerbeds. The tree is fast growing and highly tolerant of rocky, poorly drained, or compacted soils. Fall color is a bright gold.

Cedar Elm is deer resistant.
