Grow the Actual Survivor Tree!

These seedlings were grown with seed collected from the actual Survivor Tree, an amazing 90 year-old American Elm which withstood the 1995 Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bomb blast and remains steadfast to this day in its original location on the grounds of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. With this seedling, you will grow a true descendant of this historical tree — a living testament to the spirit of resilience and courage of the Oklahoma City community, the American people, and survivors everywhere.


About American Elm

With it's imposing size, stately form, powerful gray-clad trunk, and shapely crown of fine foliage, the American Elm (Ulmus americana) is one of America's most handsome and wide-ranging native trees. Among Elms, it is often considered the grandest and most beloved. This rugged tree is a rapid grower that thrives in a variety of soil types and extreme climates, both hot and cold.


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


Seedling Size Chart: Medium

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
