Comments: This tree was originally identified as an American elm, and then later as a rock elm. Based on fruit samples collected in 2012, the tree was identified as Dutch elm by Tom Wieboldt, at the time curator of the Virginia Tech Massey Herbarium. 2017 update: Tree appears generally healthy. A few small dead branches are visible at the top of the tree. Located in a protected area on the campus of Roanoke College. It has a drain pipe embedded in the trunk approximately 5 1/2 ft above ground level on the side facing High Street. The drain appears to have been intentionally installed years ago. The tree is cared for by Bartlett Tree Experts.
