Notes:

I have 4 of these in my yard. The limbs hang down like a weeping willow. I have to prune them every month at least. They have feathery limbs like scales. They are good for shade but are a big trouble maker. What are they?

    Thank you. The leaves and limbs don’t look exactly the same but I don’t know enough about trees to tell. Maybe if I take it to Pike’s they can confirm? Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

    Looks like the native winged elm, ulmus alata.
