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!

Frontier Elm is a small, fast-growing deciduous tree with an upright pyramidal crown and a fluted exfoliating trunk.  The narrow shiny dark green leaves have small teeth turn an attractive reddish-purple in fall.  Insignificant fall flowers give way to papery wing-like seed pods that mature mid-fall.  Grows best with full sun and rich well-drained soils.  Frontier has good resistance to dutch elm disease, elm yellows,  and elm leaf beetles.  Can tolerate both dry and wet sites.
