You might post this on the Trees forum. It would have to be guesstimated based on shape alone, I guess.

RE: identify this tree

It's shaped like an American Elm, Ulmus americana. If it is an elm, it is probably treated to keep it healthy since most elms that size have succumbed to Dutch Elm Disease, a fungal disease spread by a type of beetle.
