This beautiful Elm tree that once graced Dunstan Landing Road in Scarborough was known as the King Elm. It was on the property of the King family. It was lost to Dutch elm disease in 1960, despite every effort to save it. At the time the tree was removed it was six feet across and estimated to be 300 years old.Show Details
