    Sure looks like a Siberian Elm to me.....from here. I'm a long ways away from it. Seriously, look up the Siberian Elm and see if you think it's a match.

    It doesn't seem to have the sharp jagged edges like the siberian elm. I will take a closer pic of the leaf. Back in 3 weeks to prune.

    Need a close up of the leave margins and especially the bottom of the leaf where it meets the petiole.

    Turns out to be Styrax Japonica, or Snowbell. Not pruned by me, but by Rick Bunch, who was working with me on the property this weekend.

    Tri lobed but not usual suspects of rubrum, x freemani, saccharinum, and prob not buergerianum. Hmmmm...

    Pseudoplatanus would be my guess.

    That seems a very good guess. Leaf undersides are purplish too.
