Planning to install this tree yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for do it yourself installations. These small sizes do not require any offloading equipment!
Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Upright European Hornbeam is a medium-sized deciduous tree has a narrow upright pyramidal habit that gradually turns more vase-like as it matures.  The serrated and heavily ribbed bright green foliage turns yellow-orange in fall.  Separate male (yellow) and female (green) catkins bloom in early spring and the female catkins give way to distinct clusters of winged nutlets.  Prefers average well drained soils.
