Also known as Upright Hornbeam. A tree of medium size and with pyramidal growth habit. It is slender in its youth and can often be seen growing in restricted areas despite the fact that it develops “middle age spread”, reaching up to 15m wide. It is better growing in an open, parkland setting and is very effective if left feathered to the base, producing gold and orange autumn colours. It grows well on most soils, including clay and chalk. A most useful tree for poor planting conditions.
Nice Grade Trees at 3m high.
