Medium-size tree, 5-15 (20) m tall, 4-6-8 m wide depending on whether it has several stems, somewhat asymmetrical, with one or more stems, crown usually ovoid, stem crooked, branches vertically upright, twigs extended, horizontal to slightly lilting, slow to moderate growth, 20-40 cm a year

Elliptical, dark green, yellow-brown in October, occasionally yellow-orange or green-yellow, often persistent and brown into spring
Fruits
Inconspicuous
Roots
Intense, dense cordate root system, sensitive to compaction and floods
Demands
Sun to shade, cool to warm areas, tolerates heat if soil is moist enough, frost hardy, tolerant of urban pollution, wind resistant
Soil
Moderately dry to fresh; on all soil that is not too poor, sensitive to salt
