I live in Los Angeles County. This tree is in my backyard and it grows very fast. What type of tree is this?

    Got the pictures… and just put them up for you: Those Chinese elms have the prettiest exfoliating bark…

    I think it is a Chinese Elm. I sent Jim & Stone an e-mail of the close up photos.

    I agree with stone. Not close to close enough. From what I can make of the leaves, the possibility of some species of locust occurs.

    Maybe a chinese elm? Without a close-up of the leaves, and another close-up of the bark… It’s difficult to say for sure what the tree is.
