What Is A Camper Down Elm?
A camper down is a type of tree that grows well in cold climates. They are native to North America and Europe. They have small leaves with straight or slightly curved edges, usually greenish yellow or pale pink, and grow up to 15 feet tall. Their wood is light brown in color, but they can be made darker by soaking them in alcohol for several hours before burning them.
Camperdown Elm Tree Facts
The name “camper” refers to their ability to withstand extreme temperatures. When it’s cold outside, they will stay inside. They do not like being left out in the cold either; so when the weather warms up, they come out and enjoy the warmth. Camperdown elm trees are known for their longevity, which makes them ideal for outdoor living spaces where there is little protection from harsh winter conditions.
