The Princeton Elm is a cultivar of the American Elm U. americana originally selected in 1920 by a New Jersey grower for its landscape qualities. In 1932 many examples of this cultivar were planted along two streets in Princeton, and most of these trees survive to this day unaffected by disease. Testing in laboratory conditions by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in the 1990s revealed that this cultivar has considerable resistance to Dutch elm disease and consequently it has been raised for commercial sale again on both sides of the Atlantic.
