Can anyone identify this tree?

Lots of them, all seem fairly young, in woodland with lots of Sycamore, Ash, Hazel, Elder, Beech and Oaks.

These winter twigs are haiy like hazels, but the buds are brown and pointed, could it be Elm?  Not sure, help would be greatly appreciated as it is for my project!

    Hi,

    from the multi-stemmed habit and the hairy stems I'd say it was Hazel, the buds look about right too.

     

    This site might be helpful for any further ids, but do post here if in any doubt...

        Hi,

         

        that comparison ceratinly makes it a lot clearer, thank you.

        You were right in your original post, it is Elm, the Wych Elm, Ulmus glabra. If you compare it to this pic and the pics from this site the hairy twigs, pointed buds and zig-zag bud arrangement all match nicely.

         

        Cheers,

        Jen
