Ulmus parvifolia, also called the Chinese Elm or Lacebark Elm, is native to eastern Asia and was imported as an ornamental to the United Kingdom as early as 1794 and to the United States in the mid-19th century. It is a deciduous or semi-deciduous medium-sized tree that grows approximately 60 feet tall, with a slender trunk and a distinctive bark pattern. The Chinese Elm's wood is exceptionally hard and tough, and the species is resistant to Dutch Elm Disease and the Elm Leaf Beetle. It is also very cold-hearty and thrives in harsh planting environments like near parking lots or in pots along streets. It tolerates significant pruning and makes a good choice for bonsai.

The “For More Info” Project is a joint venture of The Wiregrass Archives and the Troy University Libraries funded in part by a generous grant from the Historic Chattahoochee Commission Seed Grant Program. Begun in 2015, “For More Info” provides a place to find biographical information and images of the people honored in the Memorial Tree Program established by the Dothan Beautification Board in 1991 and continued at Troy University Dothan Campus.
“For More Info” also provides organizational histories and biographical sketches concerning named buildings, rooms, and other facilities on campus.
