Ulmaceae -- Elm family

    G. A. Snow

    Winged elm (Ulmus alata) is a very hardy, small-to  medium-sized tree in a wide range of habitats throughout much of  the southern Midwest and Southeastern United States. Other common  names are cork elm and wahoo.

    On fertile soils with adequate moisture and drainage, winged elm  grows well and is a useful component of several forest types. On  poor dry sites it is stunted and gnarled and can be an  undesirable invader of grazing land. Winged elm lumber is mixed  with other elm. This tree is occasionally planted in southern  landscapes.
