Carpinus japonica

Japanese Hornbeam makes a tidy, compact, vase-shaped tree that performs beautifully in woods edge areas, as well as in small suburban landscapes. The foliage is clean and very regularly displayed on the fine textured branches, changing from its summer shade of green, to yellow and amber in fall. Andrew Bunting, of the Scott Arboretum, has seen Carpinus japonica used very effectively as a small street tree.
