EUROPEAN HORNBEAM QUICK GUIDE
CARPINUS BETULUS DETAILS
Carpinus betulus was introduced to North America sometime during the colonial era. The common ‘hornbeam’ name is due to the tree’s extremely hard wood, which will take on a horn-like smooth polish, and was once widely used in Europe to make oxen yokes. The hedge works perfect in urban areas. Carpinus betulus is perfect for screening to get instant privacy.
European Hornbeam looks very similar to European Beech when grown as a hedge, and they can be considered interchangeable. You can learn more about the differences between Hornbeam and Beech here. Buy Carpinus Betulus today!
