American Hophornbeam Tree

Alternative Views:

American Hophornbeam trees (Ostrya virginiana) are good medium-sized trees (30 feet) to plant as a shade tree.  These native American shade trees grow from Canada to Florida (zone 3 -9) as a very cold hardy tree and are also called:   Eastern Ironwood trees, because hophornbeam has such a dense, strong wood that is excellent to use in tool handles and fence posts.  If you plant this tree near your home,  your electric bill will be dramatically reduced in cost.   The Eastern Hophornbeam is a slow growing tree, and is often planted as an ornamental shade tree or as a street tree in city parks, because hophornbeam is so resistant to drought.  The compound leaves are 5 inches long but shorter usually, and the brown bark peels off the tree into large flat pieces.  This deciduous shade tree produces small nuts that are pea-size and loved by birds.

Reviewer: Barbara Withers from Salem, OH United States  
Very pleased with the tree. Was planted in memory of my late husband at his Celebration of Life service. Would highly recommend TyTy Nursery. Ordering and delivery were easy and my requests met without any problems.  Thank you very much.
