A Bit More

Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigiata’ is a proven winner as a street tree or in institutional landscapes. Also called European Hornbeam, young trees are markedly columnar but fill out into handsome tear drop shape as they mature. The fall foliage of Carpinus is a golden yellow. The foliage of the Hornbeam tree is quite dense, and the trees themselves make excellent screening and windbreaks. Watch Carpinus for scale infestation. Plant Carpinus in rows for excellent screening and windbreaks.
