Elms

The genus first appeared in the Miocene geological period about 20 million years ago, originating in what is now central Asia.


These trees flourished and spread over most of the Northern Hemisphere, inhabiting the temperate and tropical-montane regions of North America and Eurasia, presently ranging southward across the Equator into Indonesia.
