Siberian Elm Tree - A Review

The Siberian Elm Tree, also commonly referred to as the Ulmus Pumila, comes in green foliage and holds a mature height of 50-70 feet with a mature spread of 40-60 feet. Its soil is widely adaptable and may be used with nearly any soiling solution or planted in any environment. The Siberian Elm Tree occupies zones 4-9. This plant is also a native of Central Asia, Eastern Siberia, the Far East, Mongolia, Tibet, Northern Asia, India - Northern Kashmir - and even Korea. It's also known as the Asiatic Elm or the Dwarf Elm but is also sometimes miscalled Chinese Elm. It's the last of its species encountered within the semi-desert slopes of central Asia. Described in the 18th century from among numerous specimens of Transbaikal, this Ulmus Pumila's widely cultivated throughout America, Asia, and southern Europe. It's naturalized across much of the U.S. Usually small to medium-sized, and often bushy; it grows to 10–20 m - or 35–65 ft - tall, with trunks up to 176 cm d.b.h. Its leaves are deciduous within cold areas yet semi-evergreen in warm climates - less than 7 cm long and less than 3 cm broad with oblique bases and coarsely serrated margins, that change from dark green to yellow.

General Characteristics of Winged Sumac

Winged sumac is a native, deciduous, huge shrub that hardly exceeds ten feet. On the leaves of Winged Sumac are alternate and compound in nature, and their length varies from 16-24 inches, with a leaf stalk that is winged.

The plant’s leaflets are rounded at its base and sharply pointed towards the tip. It has finely ragged margins. Also, its leaflets are pale beneath and dark green and smooth above.

Towards July to September, compact groups of green to yellow flowers blossom. Their fruits might then mature much later in the fall. The bear fruit head is a robust cluster of round, red, hairy fruits referred to as drupes. A single drupe measures a quarter inch in diameter and usually contains a single seed. A cluster of drupes includes a minimum of 100 seeds and a maximum of 700. The fruit forms on plants that are not less than three years old.

The propagation of its seeds is improved when they pass through the digestive system of quails, rabbits, and ring-necked pheasants. The presence of high temperatures caused by fire as well encourages an increased rate of sprouting.

Winged sumac grows in the eastern United States. The plant mostly prefers fertile, highland sites but they as well withstand a broad range of conditions. They are tolerant of little acidic soil conditions as well as textures that range from granular to excellent. Distinctive growing sites consist of fence rows, burned areas, open fields, and roadsides. The plant does not tolerate shade and is considered a primary succession species.
