Sorry Greengage.
4. Cannot be a Cherry... Prunus.
The leaves of Cherry are alternate.
The pics here clearly show a pair of opposite leaves.

Had another good look at Freckles pics of 5.

Are you seeing something I missed?

I cannot see any sign of the uneven /unsymetrical base of the leaf at the stalk end, that I would expect to see on Ulmus procera... common name Elm.
To see what I mean there is a very clear pic of a single leaf on this link.
