Sizing guide

Ulmus americana 'Princeton'

Common Names: American Elm; Common Elm, Water Elm; White Elm

An iconic deciduous tree native to North Carolina, American Elms are loved for their graceful, stately shape, with branches like spreading fountains, and green leaves that turn gold in fall.

They grow well in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun, although it tolerates light shade. Elms can grow 60 to 80 feet tall with a trunk diameter of 2 to 5 feet, plus they're fast growers! (3-5ft per year once established)

Best suited to larger yards and landscapes where the tree is able to grow uninterrupted so to provide splendid shade, even cooling the yard and buildings substantially enough to reduce air conditioning costs.

This 'Princeton' variety is more resistant to the diseases and pests that plague other types.

Welcome to The Plant Firm

The Plant Firm was created during the lockdown of 2020 as a fun project to give me something to do. It quickly became a much larger endeavor and one that I knew needed more attention to be done right. I was tired of paying an arm and a leg for plants at the big box store and saw an opportunity to save people time and money while also delivering straight to their door. So, here we are in 2023. Officially up and running with an amazing team, more plants, and a desire to provide you with better plants at better prices!
