Zelkova was used to replace diseased native elms as street plantings here. They are an excellent substitute. They appear to be very slow growing.

Neutral smiln32 On Jan 4, 2005, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

This tree is nice for the landscape, as a specimen tree and can also be used for city street plantings. It does need well drained soil and moderate fertility in order to do well. In good conditions, it can reach a height of up to 80'. It will tolerate a wide range of soil pH values (3.7 - 7.0) as well as pollution and wind. Once established, drought tolerant. Requires pruning to develop a strong structure.

Autumn foliage is copper/red. Very attractive.
