Ulmus parvifolia
Lacebark Elm

The ornamental bark on mature specimens of Lacebark Elm varies greatly in color from tree to tree, but is always composed of flakes and overlapping plates that occur on the many trunks and branches of this tree. Bark color is often composed of different shades of brown, cream, orange, and gray, and may have elements of light green and gray-blue due to algae and lichens.
