Ulmus americana 'Minneapolis Park'
The American Elm Ulmus americana cultivar 'Minneapolis Park' was a selection made by the Minneapolis Park Department as being particularly suited to boulevard planting.
The tree has a relatively high number of stiff, upright branches creating a broad pyramidal shape.
Pests and diseases
'Minneapolis Park' was ultimately found to be very susceptible to Dutch elm disease.
First advertised for sale in 1958, but owing to its susceptibility  to disease it is unlikely the tree remains in cultivation. However, some authorities regard the tree as identical to Moline, an example of which survives at the Morton Arboretum.
