Celtis occidentalis, most commonly known as the Common Hackberry, is a member of the Elm family which is immune to Dutch Elm Disease and is native to North America.
This tree has soft green leaves that are heart shaped and borne on large arching stems and produces an abundance of small fruits in the autumn time that turn orange-red to dark purple. This vigorous, round topped tree has very corky bark at maturity which exhibits wart-like protuberances.
Celtis occidentalis will thrive on most soils in the UK and has been known to reach 35m in height in deep and fertile soils in the US. The Common Hackberry tends to not reach such magnificent proportions in the UK, instead reaching a moderate mature height that renders it suitable for parklands, estates and large gardens,
Mature Height: 7-12m
