Grey Elm Lumber

Grey Elm (Ulmus Americanna) is a small to medium size tree that originated in North America. Grey Elm wood is known for having sapwood that is grayish white color and heartwood that has a reddish brown color. Grey Elm lumber has a grain that is mostly straight and coarse, but sometimes can be interlocked. Grey Elm has an average bending and shock strength, and is much softer and lighter in weight than Red Elm. Grey Elm is fairly easy to work with, but has a tendency to wool-up when sharp tools are not used.

Common uses for Grey Elm lumber include some furniture, ladder rungs, shipbuilding, and other general constructions.

Cook Lumber Company, when available, can produce small quantities of Grey Elm lumber to companies worldwide while complying with all national and international lumber laws.
