The Elm is the most graceful of all our native trees. Who is not familiar with the wineglass Elms of New England that so lightly o'erarch the village streets and greens? It is quite a rapid grower and reaches a graceful form at an early age. It is one of the most desirable trees for a small place, but it is so susceptible to the ravages of the moths that one plants it with many misgivings. One is loth to give up this tree which is so identified with the history and literature of the country, which is so typical of the New England yard, but its imsightliness in early Summer and the disheartening war one is compelled to wage unceasingly against its enemies have weighed in the balance against its use in present-day planting. If a few Elms are set out it would be well to plant Pin Oaks within a short distance of them, which may be retained if the Elms succumb.
