English Elm Trees Make a Come Back!

The English Elm tree (Ulmus procera) could soon become a familiar site in the British countryside again. Four naturally occurring genotypes have been identified as being resistant to Dutch Elm disease, which ravaged the countryside in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, killing over 20 million trees. If their resistance is proven to be effective, they could soon become part of the governments scheme to combat climate change, by planting millions more trees across the country.
