|First of all, I think it is an Elm tree. Can someone confirm?
This is my first year in this house and I notice the elm tree in my backyard has leaves+barks+branches falling in the middle of the summer. The leaves become yellowish as shown on the pictures below.
At first, I thought it caught the Dutch Elm Disease, but I didn't see any symptoms of 2mm diameter holes drilled through the bark. See close-up pictures below.
Then, I thought it was a drought issue. So I tried to dig up a tree ring and noticed there were 1 or 2 girdling roots around the bottom of the trunk. I removed them and put some mulch, but still it didn't help much.
What's wrong with it? Can I still save this tree?

|Hi Phil, to NGA
I don't know what your tree problems are but someone will be along shortly to help you sort it out. In the mean time, if you could add your location to your information, it would be really helpful to the people who know something.
