Definition of ELM

  1. The English name of a genus of trees, Ulmus, nat. order Ulmaceae. The species, of which there are thirteen, are natives of the northern temperate zone. They have bisexual flowers, with a campanulate calyx, as many stamens as there are divisions in the limb of the calyx, and two styles. Two species are common in Great Britain and this country, one indigenous, U. montana (the wych elm), and the other introduced, U. campestris (the common elm), but cultivated everywhere. Both trees are very variable, and the varieties have received specific names. The elm is one of our principal timber trees, for usefulness ranking next to the oak. It is valued for the rapidity of its growth, its hardiness, and its capability of thriving in poor soil unfit for tillage.
