Unique shape for a Zelkova. Distinctly wider than it is tall. Somewhat flat-topped at maturity. Even with its limited height the branching begins high enough up the trunk to allow people and equipment to pass easily underneath. This quality makes it a great street and sidewalk tree – stays low enough to stay under power lines. Beautiful red foliage in the fall. Very durable and adaptable.
