Carpinus Betulus

A medium-sized, deciduous tree that grows 40-60’  tall with a pyramidal to oval-rounded crown. Ovate, sharply-toothed, dark green leaves are clean and attractive throughout the growing season. Foliage turns an undistinguished yellow to orange in autumn. Monoecious flowering catkins form in early spring before the foliage emerges. Male catkins (to 1.5” long) are yellowish and female catkins (to 3” long) are greenish. Fruits are small nutlets in 3-lobed bracts that appear in drooping 5” long clusters in summer. Trunks have smooth gray bark and distinctive muscle-like fluting.
