A: There is no way I can answer this question. Take sample of leaves and photos to an independent garden center or nursery that sells Elms. Also check with your county extension. History of tree would also be valuable. Age, soil, location, care. and exposure are all important inputs. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
