The fifth grade class learned that Massachusetts has many state symbols, suggested, debated, and chosen by the people of the state through the years. The symbols represent the history, natural resources and industries of our state. We learned that sometimes there are reasons to change some of our symbols, as we listen to the voices of all of our citizens.
AMERICAN ELM TREE
The American Elm Tree is about 80-120 feet tall, and 2-5 feet feet in diameter. These trees have been around for more than 20 million years. That is a long time. This tree is also known as white elm, water elm, soft elm, and common elm. Its blooming period is February-April. It is an important source of food and shelter for birds and squirrels. Native Americans used elm tree to make canoes.
