A nationwide project to document healthy, mature Elms now contains over 200 entries. The information, submitted by the country’s most dedicated walkers, scientists, conservation organisations and amateur naturalists, has taken many years to complete. The records include photographs and accurate grid references, documenting the location and condition of every Elm discovered throughout the country.
As part of the Elm Map project, a leaflet ñ produced by UK natural history organisations, including the Natural History Museum, English Nature and the Woodland Trust ñ is available to download. It contains a guide to identifying Elm trees and includes pictures of some of the endangered species that depend on them.
