Project Summary

Dutch Elm Disease Resistant Cultivars for Campus Environmental Sustainability

John Dryden, Dept. of Civil Engineering & Construction Management ($3,135.00)

100 Dutch Elm Disease (DED) Resistant elm cultivar seedlings were grown to sapling size, then planted around campus by student groups and GS Landscape Services, and serve as campus landmark trees during Arbor Day plantings. These saplings also serve as propagation ‘parents’, thus ensuring a steady future supply of DED resistant elm trees for GS. As there has been virtually no research into the performance of these cultivars in Georgia, the long-term performance of these cultivars was reported to the National Elm Trial as part of their continuing research.
