The American elm is a tree which can grow up to 100 feet tall. It is found over much of the eastern United States, as far north as Maine and as far south as Texas. Its range extends west into Montana and Wyoming. The flowers of the American elm emerge before the leaves, so keep a close eye on them in the spring. The flowers are small and purplish-brown in color.
