Medford Elm Tree

American Elm tree in West Medford

American Elm tree in West Medford

I was psyched to see this newly planted elm tree aside the West Medford fire station.

Elm trees once lined New England’s streets.  I loved the canopy of green, leafy trees that I walked beneath on my way to school when I was a kid.  It was years later, when I went back and found not a tree on the street, that I realized those must have been elm trees lining the street.  Dutch Elm Disease wiped out 100,000s of American Elm trees.

There are efforts underway to plant DED-resistant elm trees.  This tree, a Liberty Elm, from the Elm Research Institute of Keene, NH was planted by the fire station in memory of West Medford resident Laurie Cote.

I didn’t have the privilege of knowing Mr. Cote but found this tribute in a newsletter from the Piano Technicians Guild.
