Product Description

Fast growing native small tree to 20 metres which prefers good drainage. It will grow in most soil types and is a highly ornamental and graceful tree often called the lady of the woods. It is a good choice in a mixed native hedge, as a fast growing deciduous screen which filters but does not obscure a view, or as a stand alone tree which can be coppiced for fuel. It is host to a wide range of unusual and colourful fungi. Plant young small plants as it does not transplant well (Gaeilge : Beith Gheal. Bark used to make boats and shoes. )
