Ulmus × hollandica
Hybrid parentage U. glabra × U. minor
Cultivar 'Fjerrestad'
Origin Sweden

The hybrid cultivar Ulmus × hollandica 'Fjerrestad' is one of a number of cultivars arising from the crossing of the Wych Elm U. glabra with a variety of Field Elm U. minor. The tree was first mentioned in Meded. Comite. Best. Iepenz. 13: 9, 1933, but without description.[1]


None available.


No details of the clone's commercial cultivation survive. It is worth noting that all the elms in the conservation area [1] at Fjerrestad have succumbed to Dutch elm disease. No specimens are known to survive.


The clone is named for the village of Fjärrestad in Skåne between Landskrona and Helsingborg, Sweden.

Hybrid cultivars[edit]

'Fjerrestad' was crossed with Ulmus × hollandica and U. minor in the Dutch elm breeding programme before World War II, but none of the progeny were of particular note and were discarded.[2]
