Why plant Village Green™ Zelkova?
It doesn't take a village to grow this tree! The Village Green™ Zelkova is one fast-growing tree that is relatively low maintenance! These deciduous trees have a strong, straight and sturdy trunk that hold its outreached limbs that are clustered with lush, finely serrated, and glossy dark green leaves. In the fall, the foliage is a collage of many pleasing autumn tones from yellows to reds. When this tree is young, the bark is smooth, once matured it turns into an exfoliating texture. This is one eye-catching ornamental tree that you simply just cannot miss out on.
Village Green™ Zelkova are native to Japan, Taiwan and the Eastern China area. The Zelkova has been promoted in the recent years as a substitute for the American Elm because of its resistance to the Dutch Elm Disease. Princeton Nurseries in Princeton, New Jersey introduced this open pollinated seedling into commerce in the 1960s.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
