Elms would require more space so try trees that are more tolerant of smaller spaces such as acer rubrum (red maple), carpinus  betulus `Fastigiata', Ginko biloba, Gleditsia triacanthos var. inermis, Prunus sargentii, Sophora japonica, Tilia or zelkova serrata `Green Vase'. You can look these up on a computer and decide which ones you like. Good soil and attention to watering are important keys to success particularly in the city.
