A symbol of resilience in the Lone Star State, the Cedar Elm (Ulmus crassifolia) thrives throughout the Gulf Coastal Plains. Also known as Texas Elm, Texas Cedar Elm, Scrub Elm, and Basket Elm, this adaptable and resilient tree is a true Texan treasure. This native Texan boasts an unmatched level of adaptability, tolerating a wider range of soil conditions than any other elm species in the state. From heavy clay and salty coastal soils to limestone outcroppings and even fairly wet areas, the Cedar Elm finds a way to prosper. This remarkable flexibility is a key reason why it reigns supreme as the most prevalent elm across Texas. Standing tall with an upright, rounded crown, the Cedar Elm offers a generous patch of shade. Its branches reach outward, creating a slightly weeping silhouette. Dense foliage of glossy green leaves fills the canopy. These small, 1-inch leaves have a surprising texture – rough and thick, similar to sandpaper. Their edges are serrated, adding a touch of character. While most elm species boast a vibrant fall display, the Cedar Elm keeps things simple. Come fall, its leaves transform into a beautiful shade of yellow before gracefully dropping to the ground. Young Cedar Elms possess a unique feature – corky growths resembling wings run along the sides of their branches. This characteristic earns them the nickname “Winged Elm.” As the tree matures, the rough bark weathers and thickens, eventually covering these wings and giving the trunk a mature look. Mature Cedar Elms boast a light brown to gray bark, deeply furrowed and ridged, adding a touch of rugged charm to the landscape. With its adaptability, resilience, and interesting features, the Cedar Elm is a true Texan treasure.
