Elms 002

Kris Edson, lead tree surgeon for Penn State's Office of Physical Plant, tied off branches of a diseased elm tree near Walker Building for removal on June 16. This summer, 16 elms will be removed from the University Park campus due to Dutch elm disease. Since 2007, nearly 100 of the campus' approximately 293 American elms have been lost to Dutch elm disease and elm yellows.
