American Elm or Pear Tree? One has to go.

Last year I planted a pear tree. Turns out the small tree near it (about 20' away) which I planned to cut down this winter is an American Elm (maybe 12' high). As these are a bit rare here I am not excited about cutting it down. I discovered one other American Elm about 90 yds away along edge of creek. There are no others on my 50 acres, and none that I've seen anywhere near here. I'm not excited about trying to move the pear tree either and losing 2 yrs of root growth. This is in open prairie land with a few trees along fence rows and the creek. Z8 central Tx. area. Any recommendations?
