Not sure if it's true but I had a forester tell me once white oak and burr oak are the same far as durability. Just a thought if you can't get white oak. Not sure about red elm, we don't have enough in the area to ever get any boards out of one. I do know unlike regular elm a red elm will stand until the roots rot out from under them.

No matter what you end up using, stick to the narrower boards, a lot less prone to splitting and warping.
