Personally, the use-value of Erine the American Elm tree is just looking at his beauty. Also what is in store for him gives me hope. He will grow up to 120 feet tall and live up to 300 years old. Also it could be home to many animals and feed a lot of them too. When it is chopped down and dies, it has many valuable uses for it. The wood of Erine is used for plywood, flooring, railroad ties, and pulp. Erine is one of many of the graceful trees that fill northeastern states and also Pennsylvania and Illinois. I do not want my tree to be taking advantage of. I want him to live out his life to the fullest before someone sentences him to the chair.
