Does it do well on acidic soil and do deer like to eat it?

It took some effort but I think you are asking about Lacebark Elm - Ulmus Parvifolia.

Someone who knows something about elms will jump in here with more information.

Welcome! Ulmus parviflora (usual common name Chinese elm) is supposed to be tolerant of acidic soil as well as alkaline up to a certain point. I've seen it both on lists of plants deer don't usually eat and lists of plants deer might nibble on in spring. It might depend how much of a deer problem you have and what their preferences are because they seem to vary. Are you thinking of white-tailed deer as in North America? I don't find they bother the American elms around here.
