Is it a zelkova or is it an elm? To me from what I can tell, it looks like an elm.

In either situation.. If you are on the Northen hemisphere.. It is winter. Trees drop their leaves in winter in response to dropping temperatures in interaction with reduced day length.
I have hardly any trees left in my garden that still have leaves.

I did a resarch on the type of the tree and i think that is zelkova which is very similar with the elm kind. But definatly i gotta take it to someone who knows this kind of stuff. Thank you for you response, and it is a releaf to know that its leaves are fallen cause of the weather :silly: If you can tell me should i keep it outside or inside. Now is in my room on the table, and it gets a day light and sun when theres one. Is that okay?

It looks like an elm,to me. The leaves are broader, and more jagged. In either case, it needs to be outside/

NOT ALL trees belong outside ALL year. Please be clear about that. Some people may think that they should immediately drop some 1 yr old tree, or tropical tree, in the snow.

Age is not so relevant. Natural range of the species is, indeed.

I agree... age isn't the most relevant, but it can be a factor in what you do with a tree.
