Jay--I like your elm, hope you don't mind if I took the liberty to personalize it a bit...the top was looking a bit like a stovepipe so I reduced it a bit. These are fast growers where you are, right? I don't think a reduction like this would harm it. I would also shorten the lower branches and see if you can get some buds to pop to the sides as they are pretty vertical right now. Good luck with your tree.
depending on branching and budding, toward the front would be acceptable too, or any angle between.
