Product Description

Alnus glutinosa is a deciduous conical shaped tree with dark fissured bark, the dark green leaves are, racquet-shaped and leathery with serrated edges. Catkins appear between February and April adding some winter interest. A native to Britain, with a natural habitat in moist ground and thrives in damp, cool areas such as marches, wet woodland and streams where its roots help to prevent soil erosion. Will tolerate almost any soil condition except shallow chalk. Fast and easy to grow, thriving even in waterlogged soil. Excellent for shelter belts. Respond well to coppicing and heavy pruning at any stage. Should be encouraged as shelter trees on poorland as they are effective nitrogen fixers for other symbiotic plant life.
