East Bridgewater, MA

This was seen in Massachusetts near the Concord River. I thought it might be a type of Elm tree, but go easy on me if I'm way off. :)

Thanks!

No, you're right on! Looks like an Elm indeed.
There are just a couple likely species -- are the leaves smooth to the touch on top or scratchy?

Looks like Slippery elm to me since the leaves narrow quickly to a needle like point at the end.

Despite the name, "Slippery" Elm leaves are scratchy to the touch (on top) while American Elm feels smooth and slippery!

I wish I could remember the feel of the leaves. Unfortunately this is almost an hour away from my house.

I'll call it the Slippery Elm because of the needle point and also I don't have that on my tree list yet. :)

Thanks!
