This hardy tree will reach 75 feet light to brown bark with flattened ridges with thin, loose, flaky scales. It is particularly common in Gonzales County and is considered to some to be a trash tree because of its rapid growth. But Cedar Elm is a strong grower that can do well in a variety of setting. It is susceptible to hypoxylon canker but not as much as other local trees.
