Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - american elm is highly susceptible to dutch elm disease. This is a fungus that grows inside living tissue, causing wilting and eventual death. It is incurable. Dutch elm disease is spread by the elm bark beetle, and the only method of control is spraying chemical insecticides to kill the beetles. Dutch elm disease is indigenous to eastern asia where the elms there are immune or at least resistant. Dutch elm disease was first noticed in north america around 1930, and quickly spread across the continent, killing millions of american elms. It has destroyed most native elms in europe and north america. Although live elms are still not uncommon, the disease has not run its course, and more elms die every year. It seems that elm death rates in north america have increased since the 1960's. There is considerable research going on to develop american elms or hybrids that are resistant to dutch elm disease. So far results have been encouraging, but still no truly immune american elm strain has been found.
