Siberian Elm Tree

The Siberian elm tree is a common landscaping tree which is planted in thousands of gardens around the world. It can tolerate a variety of bad environments and need very little maintenance during the growth. It can normally grow up to 70 feet in height and its green foliage will turn into yellow in autumn, making a great view for your autumn garden. It may be affected by a variety of insects and you should pay some careful attention to this issue.

The Siberian elm prefers a location with full sunlight and well-drained soil conditions. They can also grow well in partial shading areas. The ideal PH value for growing this tree is from 6 to 8, which can be a slightly acidic or alkaline soil type. It can tolerate some drought environment as well. During the growth, some pruning work might be necessary to make it tidy and healthy.

Since this tree can be infected by a variety of pests, some regular checking is necessary. Some bugs like can mites or elm leaf beetles can cause severe issues, so you should get rid of them as quickly as you can using some pesticides. Some bugs will hide in stippled leaves, and you should do a thorough check up from time to time. Apart from the chemicals from the local market, you can also control the pests using their natural enemies like thrips or ladybugs.
