A graceful tree that forms a rounded canopy with arching branches. A classic beauty beloved in front and back yards, providing shade to the free spirits of summer for hundreds of years past and the ones to come.

It resembles American elm (Ulmus americana) with its vase shaped growing habit. ALLEE was cloned from a tree growing at the University of Georgia campus at Athens. It is noted for its fluted trunk, exfoliating bark (shades of grays, gray greens and orange-browns), narrow leaves and resistance to the common pests and diseases of elm trees. It reportedly has excellent resistance to Dutch elm disease and elm leaf beetle. Small, non-showy flowers appear in fall. Flowers give way to single-seeded, wafer-like samaras (each tiny seed is surrounded by a flattened ovalrounded papery wing). Ovate-elliptic, bright green leaves (to 2” long) have serrate margins, acuminate tips and asymmetrical bases.
