The Siberian elm tree, the quintessential tree in Albuquerque, was originally introduced by Mayor Clyde Tingley. It is a beautiful tree that’s almost done too well in Albuquerque. The seeds it sends out wreaks havoc over every nook and cranny in town. Meet the Frontier Elm, a smaller elm tree with beautiful reddish-purple fall color. It is upright, with pyramidal growth. The best part is there are no seeds! It is fast-growing and resistant to many typical elm diseases and insect problems. A perfect replacement for our old standard!
