Sheboygan, once a City of Elms -  For the first half of the 20th century the mighty American elm dominated urban landscapes. Treasured for its v-shaped canopy, a mature elm often soared to 100 feet in height with a trunk that exceeded ten feet in diameter. In many cities the graceful trees arched over streets creating scenic tunnels of shade. Sixth and Seventh Streets in Sheboygan, just north of downtown, were particularly beautiful neighborhoods.  But, by the 1950s those beauties began to die from a fungus carried by insects.   Read the story here.
