Ulmaceae -- Elm family

    T. R. Crow

    Rock elm (Ulmus thomasii), often called cork elm because  of the irregular thick corky wings on older branches, is a  medium-sized to large tree that grows best on moist loamy soils  in southern Ontario, lower Michigan, and Wisconsin. It may also  be found on dry uplands, especially rocky ridges and limestone  bluffs. On good sites, rock elm may reach 30 m (100 ft) in height  and 300 years of age. It is always associated with other  hardwoods and is a valued lumber tree. The extremely hard, tough  wood is used in general construction and as a veneer base. Many  kinds of wildlife consume the abundant seed crops.
