Hard to tell from that but I think it's another type of elm

I didn't get a good picture of the seeds, but here's what I got:

Ok the seed what do they look like

I just walked over to it with my camera and the leaves are not out yet.  I'll try to remember to take a picture when they do come out.  So far, it's only the seeds that are out.  I also noticed that there are 3 other large trees beyond the first one.  No wonder I get so many seedlings in my garden.

Can you get a pic of the leaves

I've not heard of piss elm, but there's some kind of an elm about 200 feet from me that I would like to see disappear.  

It produces huge amounts of seeds every year and I have to remove the hundreds of seedlings from my garden in a timely fashion or their tap roots establish such an extremely good anchorage, that it's very hard to remove them.

k.h, that sounds like grafting or a start at it.

It took a while for me to learn. Now that I know how, I look for things to graft. Several of my fruit trees are becoming multiple varieties as a result.

I've never tried grafting. I have used duck tape to tape a broken limb back to a bush it got knocked off of. It healed just fine and when the tape finally came loose from watering l just cut it away.

That is one thing I have always wanted to do and cutting down these elms will make it worse if u dig a hole 30ft out from one and find a root and cut it it will grow 2 new trees one from each end of the cut

Just showing off. Here is one of the whip-and-tongue grafts I did 2 months ago, to propagate an apple tree. I know some people do thousands of grafts at nurseries, but this is new for me. Most of my grafts took this year. Deer ate one and a couple of others have not sprouted yet.

Nature is amazing. I still can't get over that you can cut a piece off from one plant, attach it to another, and they can heal together and grow.
