Abstract

Since the introduction of Dutch elm disease (DED) to North America, heritage elm preservation was paramount, but elm restoration is held as the long-term solution. Various elm restoration efforts have been advanced and encouraged over the past half century, and all have inspired the euphoria of the "Return of the American Elm." The changing cast of characters on the public stage of Main and Elm Streets has, however, been met with mixed reviews.
