Characteristics and Uses:
Beautiful flowers in spring are hanging catkins. Smoothed bark, grey-green, with gradually
marked trunk at the base. Lateral root growth prevents this
tree from being planted too close to buildings. This beautiful
tree is very vigorous and is planted alone in parks, in rows or
within windbreak hedges. The very supple white wood with a very
fine grain is very much appreciated.
