About Us Calendar Programs & Activities Preservation Restoration Community Forestry Get Involved

The mission of Elm Watch is to preserve and restore the American elm in our communities. We encourage elm stewardship and promote awareness of the community forest through advocacy, education and direct action.

Elm Watch Links people and communities to public trees through three primary programs:

(1)
Heritage American elm preservation through its flagship
Adopt-an-elm program.

(2)
Elm restoration through community, organization and individual sponsorship and proper planting of disease resistant elms in
public spaces.

(3)
Community forestry outreach and educational services including informational programs, slide lectures, formation and support of local tree committees, Arbor Day celebrations, and the promotion and design of green parking lots and campus arboreta.
