At Cheviot Trees in the Scottish Borders, we grow a wide range of broadleaves, to suit all planting objectives, from commercial timber production, to small woodland and conservation planting, hedging and shelterbelts.
Grown from both productive and local provenance seed sources we have plants to meet all requirements.
Ulmus glabra - Scottish Elm has the potential to grow into a large tree and is typically found in Scotland and the West of England. Native to the UK and together with Oak it was once a major tree species in the UK.
It is a very tough species and can withstand low temperatures and high elevations. Deciduous.
Scottish Elm has purplish red flowers that appear before the foliage appears in early Spring. The leaves are similar in appearance to Hornbeam with broad, serrated leaves that turn yellow in the Autumn. Our plants are grown from seed to provide a greater range of genetic diversity.
