Does this elm is disease resistant?

Asked October 15, 2017, 8:32 PM EDT

Some bird pooped an elm seed and now we have this sapling. It's growing healthy and fast. Currently its height is over 40". We know the genus but not the species or cultivar. We would like to know if the tree is dutch elm disease resistant.

As a volunteer sapling, there is no way to tell exactly what this plant is or it's resistance to any diseases or pests.
However, we wonder if it might not be a Beech seedling as opposed to an Elm.
