American Elm Tree Project
This project is directed by the American Elm Committee of the Men’s Garden Club of Youngstown. The Committee was formed in 2009 with the following mission:
vShare the history of this uniquely American tree
vPromote awareness of the new disease resistant elm trees.
vEncourage individuals to include the elm tree in their landscape plans.
vEncourage communities to plant elm trees in their parks and public spaces
The Committee carries out this mission through providing and promoting educational opportunities related to American Elms and two ongoing programs:
vBud KindelanMemorial Tree Program- provides American elm trees for public spaces in 6 counties in the Mahoning Valley: Mahoning, Columbia, Trumbull, Portage, Lawrence, and Mercer.
vAmerican Elm Tree Trial and Evaluation Site - a joint effort in partnership with Mill Creek MetroParks. This program began last year when 4 cultivars were planted at the site located on Western Reserve Road. Disease tolerant American elms will be added as they become available.
