Ulmus wallichiana

Ulmus wallichiana Planch., the Himalayan elm, also known as the Kashmir elm
Kashmir Elm
and Bhutan elm, is a mountain tree ranging from central Nuristan in  Afghanistan, through northern Pakistan and 
northern India to western 
Nepal at elevations of 800–3000 m. 
Although dissimilar in 
appearance, its common name is 
occasionally used in 
error for the cherry bark 
elm Ulmus villosa, 
which is also endemic to the Kashmir, 
but inhabits 
the valleys, not the mountain slopes. 
The species is closely related to the 
wych elm U. glabra.
