That my friend is red elm, one definite way to tell is spit it preferably with a log splitter and see if it stringy. Your wandering what I mean if it red elm and you split it you will know what stringy means. The dryer the stringier
Red elm isn't dry till the bark is off it. You see these trees standing, with all the bark off. When they die elm disease they loose there bark it takes about 7 years to loose it and fall
