I've got a chinese elm on my property currently. I hear a lot of bad things about these, how their root growth is a huge problem, for example.

Mine has been here for 10 years +, has not really grown much (I water it hardly at all), doesn't seem to be causing a lot of problems. I'm in a desert, and I expect the really hard soil and heat might inhibit growth potentially?

However, I'm in the process of water harvesting and really improving the soil, and I wonder if the Chinese Elm could become a problem with softer soil and more water in the soil. Anyone have any ideas of how this might go, or advice on the Chinese Elm and pros and cons?
