We have seen more realistic trees for model railroaders, so our trees may be best used in layouts for younger engineers, as they are sturdy enough for play. All materials in this plastic elm tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Elm" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays.

About Elm Trees
In the broadest definition from Wikipedia, "a tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting leaves or branches". Under this definition, palms, bamboo, and tree ferns are included as "trees". Some definitions attempt to narrow this to what most of us consider trees by naming specific height or use for lumber. However, when it comes right down to it, a 100-foot tree is still basically a plant, like any other bush, flower, or crop plant.
The 30 - 40 species of elm trees are found generally in temperate climates of North America and Eurasia. They are a deciduous and semi-deciduous trees, and are capable of reaching great height and age. Elms were very popular landscaping plants from the 18th - 20th centuries, particularly in cities where their natural resistance to polution and rapid growth rate made them ideal for urban environments.
