Hornbeam, Columnar 'Fastigiata'
Latin name: Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata'
A tightly pyramidal tree with a strong form; best used in the landscape as an accent, for articulation, or as a tall hedge or alee tree; excellent landscaping choice for special applications.
Pyramidal European Hornbeam is a dense deciduous tree with a narrowly upright and columnar growth habit. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.
This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback.
