    About 85 feet tall, planted as part of a garden on a large estate in Seattle around 1914.

    First branch unions are high - 15' or so off the ground.

    Compared to some nearby English elms, has much less epicormic growth, is less spreading, with smaller leaves that haven't begun to turn color yet. (Leaves pictured are on the larger side, some were significantly smaller.)

    Thanks guys! Got distracted by the vertical habit and juvenile leaves, went down the rabbit hole of Elm taxonomy instead of just paying more attention to the bark. (That interlocking criss-cross pattern should have been a dead giveaway.)
