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.

4 of 5 3 Ironwood trees June 7, 2022
Reviewer: Russell Soyring from Traverse City, MI United States  
I ordered 3 Ironwood trees.  All arrived quickly.  I planted them and two are springing to life.  One appears still. dormant.  I called and the nursery gave me good instruction to tell if it’s still alive bay scratching the bark lightly to see if it’s green and it was.  I was told to see if the tree leaves out within 30 days, if not to call them back.  I felt there cared about my concern.
