Carpinus betulus 'Fastigiata'

Grows without a central leader but instead fans out into a very densely foliated, columnar or oval-shaped tree, making it ideal for use as a hedge, screen, or windbreak. The 1.5- to 3.5-inch-long leaves are dark green through the summer, fading to yellow in the fall. The smooth, grey, rippling bark shields the extremely hard, strong wood.
