Upright-oval shape when young, quickly losing its central leader and becoming a rounded to irregular shape when mature. Fast growth. Blooms emerge with leaves, and are not ornamentally important. Good for use as a shade tree, deciduous windbreak, or for erosion control. Very urban tolerant. Very cold hardy. It is also known as the nettletree, sugarberry, beaverwood, northern hackberry, and American hackberry.
