Looking for a fast-growing tree that can handle tough conditions? Look no further than Alnus cordata, also known as Italian Alder. With shiny green leaves and mature female catkins, this medium-sized tree is native to southern Italy and Corsica. It's perfect for maritime areas thanks to its windbreak abilities, and it establishes well even in very windy sites. Plus, bacteria on the roots fix atmospheric nitrogen - enabling this tree to grow well in poor soils and making nitrogen available for other plants nearby. It's also an excellent pioneer species, ideal for re-establishing woodlands on disused farmland, difficult sites, and more. With The Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit, Italian Alder is a great choice for any garden or landscape.
