NotesOne of three along the Knowle driveway, this is a fastigiate (multi-stemmed) form of the British native tree.  Hornbeam means hard wood in old English and the timber is the hardest of any European tree.  Amog other things it was used for butcher's blocks.  The fruits have a three pointed bract that allows dispersal by the wind.  More about Hornbeam if you click here.info
