Hi experts, My mom and I were on campus last week and found this gorgeous trees all around the library quad. What are they? We would love to plant one! Thanks, Robyn

Glad you were able to visit campus-isn't it beautiful?!

This most likely is the Lacebark Elm (Ulmus parvifolia). Take a look at the photos and description on the OSU Landscape Plant ID website. Does this look like what you saw?

Happy gardening!
