    Forecasting whether any one elm (whether hinge cut or standing) is going to live on till the next year is like forecasting whether your girlfriend/wife is going to love, admire,respect and have desire for you tomorrow. That is not forecast-able. Unless you are good, real good.

    Elm has a very characteristic, strong, unpleasant smell when green.

    It will provide a lot of sprouts for deer to browse in the spring.

    It is often and under-story tree. Unless you provide a lot of sunlight for it, it won't have as much chance of living on that it normally would.

    Could be an ash but hinged like an elm and the bark looks more elmish than ashish to me.

    Ash are moderately good for hinging, elms are superb and almost every elm will survive.

    I was thinking elm. Elm have soft bark and that's one way to tell. The dark branch color also indicates elm.
