Zelkova Serrata is a deciduous tree up to 30 m in height. It is characterized by a short trunk divided quickly into a beam of several erect branches forming a wide and round head. These branches are straight or curved outwards, giving an flared and fairly wide port, unlike Zelkova of the Caucasus which has a partly similar but more vertical branch composed of much more numerous and more directed branches The interior of the tree, giving it a very differentiated port.

The tree develops quickly when it is young but the growth rate slows down over time.

Staminated flowers are approximately 3 mm in diameter, grouped in the lower leaves. The female flowers are solitary in the armpit in the upper, sessile leaves and usually about 1.5 mm in diameter. The flowers are yellow-green, not showy, and occur in tight groups along new stems.

The flowers give small Drupes Ovees that ripen in the fall. The 3 mm diameter subsessile drupe is first green and then maturation brown.
