I'm stumped. Any idea what kind of tree this is? I live in Utah, and I've searched most of the tree ID databases I can find. I lost a large branch a week or so ago in a heavy snowstorm and cut up the wood yesterday. The leaves closely resemble Elm, but the growth habit of the trunks and branches is very odd - the branches will literally turn 90 degrees in their growth, which also tends to be almost horizontal. It does not have fruit and I don't know what the seeds look like, I've never noticed them. The wood is really dense, and the bark is a reddish grey. Thanks in advance.
