    I found this tree 7 years ago growing by my house as a very small seedling. i dug it up and put it in a pot. I transplanted it 3 years ago to a bigger pot. and finally yesterday to the ground. Its small..hasnt had room to grow. forgot to water it all last summer and the leader at the top died and i removed it. its doing great now. just dnt know what it is... I really like it tho... Any help?? Leaves are not glossy, they are soft to the touch, and are flimsy not stiff. Its a very hardy tree

    Took Best pics i could. Let me know what other pics i could get that would help

    They are everywhere in Australia, just don't know the name, some sort of "Elm tree"

    To bad it is not a fig tree. Watched the movie tree(set in Australlia) and it was an awesome looking tree.

    It does look very similar to Elm or Ash, or maybe Alder. Not exact but close. There are lots of different varieties of each.
    If it was growing wild in your area, you could probably take the pics to a local nursery, and the staff might be able to ID it, for you.

    California Ash or maybe a Black Ash. You can google these and see if the images match your tree.
