Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

The Eastern Hop Hornbeam, also known as Ostrya virginiana, is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree native to eastern North America. Here's some information about it:

  1. Appearance: The Eastern Hop Hornbeam typically grows to a height of 30-40 feet (9-12 meters) with a spread of 20-30 feet (6-9 meters). It has a slender, upright form with a rounded crown. The bark is grayish-brown and develops a shaggy texture as the tree matures.

  2. Leaves: The leaves of the Eastern Hop Hornbeam are alternate, simple, and serrated. They are dark green during the summer and turn yellow or yellow-brown in the fall, adding a touch of autumn color to the landscape.

  3. Flowers: In the spring, the Eastern Hop Hornbeam produces inconspicuous flowers that are not particularly showy. The male flowers are catkins, while the female flowers are small and greenish.
