Ulmus wallichiana: Ulmus wallichiana Planch., also known as the Kashmir Elm.
This tree is not common in Uttarakhand. I know only two places in the state where it is present.
This picture was taken by …, IFS, UKFD from Mundali Village, Dehradun District.

If I am not wrong, your plant does not seem to be Ulmus wallichiana. your plant has much longer and sharper teeth than met in Ulmus wallichiana.

Perhaps another crucial difference is the number of lateral nerves which are 7-8 pairs in Corylus colurna as against 15-18 pairs in Ulmus wallichiana.

Accepted name now is Corylus jacquemontii for Himalayan plant
