Accolade Elm

Accolade is a selection of a hybrid, believed to be between Japanese Elm and Wilson Elm.  The largest tree can be found near the intersection of 17th Avenue South and 32nd Street South, along the east side of the street on the northeast section.  As you continue north along 32nd Street, there are six Accolade Elm scattered through the next few blocks.  Another interesting characteristic is that the bark has a distinct gray color in its youth.
