So here's a picture from North Campus. Interesting exfoliating bark which is highly variable depending on age. Very small leaves -- but typical elm shape with the asymmetrical leaf base. And twigs that seem to do the little jog left-right or right-left between buds, which I also identify with elms (and Tilia). In my experience, the crowns are open and cast only light shade.

I'm glad it rained a little bit today. I was starting to give up on some of the woodies in my garden.
