Celtis Occidentalis the common hackberry is a 60+ ft. deciduous tree whose growth character varies greatly according to habitat. The broad crown is often erratic in shape. Has a rounded crown of spreading or slightly drooping branches often deformed as bushy growths called ‘witches brooms’. The older bark is covered with conspicuous corky projections. The plant foliage is dull-green and rough. Its fall color is not impressive. Orange-brown to dark-purple berries are arranged in clusters. Excellent shade tree.
