Comments:Sojourners United Church of Christ had a special Earth Day Service when the congregation came out to celebrate their tree and the new life of spring, April 2015.

Before Dutch elm disease threatened to wipe out this species in the last century, Ulmus americana was a fixture of urban streetscapes, parks, school grounds and college campuses. We are fortunate to have this outstanding example still with us today.
