Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Ulmus x hollandica - Dutch Elm

Before the onset of Dutch Elm Disease, this tree was relatively common at few sites in Cornwall. It is now one of the rarer elms, though much of the sucker growth on hedges may be referrable to this hybrid. It has been recorded at Reskadinnick, near Camborne (SW64F, 1994, J.Armstrong).
