Identify elm trees
Look for elm trees in your garden and neighborhood. If in doubt, take a few leaves from the tree, seal them in a plastic bag and take it to your local Nurseryman or local council office. This will enable the tree is identity to be confirmed.
The way the leaf attaches to the petiole (the slender stalk by which a leaf is attached to the stem) is a distinguishing feature of elms.
The edges of the leaf are jagged and the veins are prominent. The base of the leaf is slightly uneven.
