Zelkova carpinifolia is a Zelkova species found in the Caucasus, Kaçkar, and Alborz mountains in Europe's extreme southeast and southwest. It is a medium-sized to big deciduous tree with a trunk that grows to be (66–115 ft) tall. With a short wide stem splitting low down into several fairly upright branches, the crown has a vase-like form. The leaves are alternating, long and wide, with a bluntly serrated edge on each side with 7–12 teeth. Wind pollinates the blooms, which are small and greenish with no petals. A tiny nutlet is the fruit.
