The Tru-Green Elm has been widely used throughout the Southern US for more than a hundred years, and is still a very popular choice for a good reason. The Tru-Green Elm performs very well in the toughest soil, needing fewer nutrients to thrive then other Elm varieties. Sometimes referred to as an Evergreen Elm, Tru-Green Elms will almost always escape winters without losing leaves, but occasionally have brief deciduous periods.
Tru-Green Elms prosper in the poorest environments and soils, which is why there are so many of them still standing around the country. Ideal for Houston’s tough growing climate, you can plant a Tru-Green Elm just about anywhere and you can rest assured you have a tough and tolerant shade tree that will be with you for years.
