Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

Japanese Elm is a hardy deciduous tree with a broad spreading crown resembling an umbrella and branches that can develop corky wings as it matures.  The rough dark green leaves with double-serrated margins turn yellow in fall.  Inconspicuous red-green flowers bloom in early spring before the foliage emerges and give way to samaras.   Grows best with full sun and rich well-drained soils.  Japanese Elm is highly resistance to Dutch Elm disease.  Can tolerate both dry and wet sites
