Camperdown Elm

The Camperdown elm is a deciduous tree with a dramatic, weeping form and twisted branches, often growing wider than it is tall. It was created in Great Britain when a gardener for the Earl of Camperdown was said to have discovered a young elm in Scotland, and reproduced the tree through cuttings. A beautiful Camperdown elm sits in the East Green, across the path from the East 72nd Street Playground.
