    Mystery tree

    Okay, heres a challenge for everyone. Probably wont be much of a challenge for some of you but around here it may as well be from Mars.

    What is this thing?
    Ive been told strawberry tree, flowering cherry, among otherthings, and this is from nursery workers.

    Im guessing some kind of Hornbeam.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Thank you, I should have come here a long time ago. Considering how much fuel i spent, I could have planted my own forest.

    Not to argue...but i'm curious...How is it exactly that you can name the cultivar? It looks like a 'fastigiata' to me. deffinately hornbeam though.

    Fastigata is more pyramidal. Wide at the base and pointing sharply upward.
    Franz fontaine is rounded at the bottom and upright oval shape Shaped more like an egg.

    If I can find a diagram showing both I will post it here.

    Ah cool. Thanks. Nice to know. I wasn't familiar with that cultivar. Good eye Quercus.
