Carpinus betulus, or hornbeam, is very similar to beech in appearance but its’ leaves have deeper veins. It tolerates poor soils and exposed sites and is hardy. Carpinus betulus has green catkins in late spring through to autumn, turning to fruit suitable for wildlife. The winter appearance of Carpinus betulus is very similar to beech with copper coloured leaves, but it is not as bright in colour, being more of a brown-grey than the orange-brown of the beech.
