|Elm has been
threatened by the devastating Dutch Elm disease both in Europe and the
USA. The timber is available although at moderately high
prices. A distinguishable feature of elm is its remarkable
durability, even when constantly wet. As well as traditional
furniture making, elm can be found in dam and lock constructions, paneling
and even caskets.
