This elm has the smallest leaves of any of the three species normally encountered within Northern Ireland. It is found as planted trees in hedgerows, mainly in the southern half of the Province. It is less common than either Ulmus procera or the native U. glabra. Like U. procera, it is particularly susceptible to infection by Dutch elm disease.

All names: Ulmus minor ssp. minor Suckow; Ulmus carpinifolia Melville; Ulmus coritana Melville; Ulmus diversifolia
