THE SURVIVOR TREE: A PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY

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. You can learn more about the Survivor Tree here.

A portion of all proceeds from the sale of these trees goes to support the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum in their efforts to offer comfort, strength, peace, hope, and serenity to those affected by the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.

About American Elm

With its 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.
