Carpinus betulus Fastigiata Standard Trees

Fastigiate Hornbeam, nicknamed Flame due to its shape, is now known as Carpinus betulus Fastigiata; some older books call it Carpinus betulus pyramidalis.

Browse our variety of large trees for your garden or view our full range of trees.

Description of Fastigiate Hornbeam:

An upright, compact form of the Common Hornbeam.
It is a large tree, narrow when young and broadening as it gets older, becoming egg-shaped when mature.
Often used for avenue planting and it makes a good native specimen in smaller gardens.

Planting Fastigiate Hornbeam trees:

Hornbeams are very versatile trees, only needing reasonably fertile soil. They love heavy clay, will tolerate shade and can be planted in the coldest regions and frost pockets.
The wood is very hard and can resist strong wind in exposed areas. Carpinus Fastigiata is a superb screening tree that should need no pruning maintenance. Plant it at 250-300cm - 8-9ft apart for this purpose.

Will grow to 20m.

Please watch our tree planting video for full planting instructions.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary.

So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around.

This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Most standards are between 2 - 3.5 metres tall, but this is just an average. We cannot tell you how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
