In a Nutshell:
* This is an excellent pioneer species for re-establishing woodlands on disused farmland, difficult sites etc.
* Its fast rate of growth means that it quickly provides sheltered conditions to allow more permanent woodland trees to become established. In addition, bacteria on the roots fix atmospheric nitrogen - whilst this enables the tree to grow well in quite poor soils it also makes some of this nitrogen available to other plants growing nearby. more...
* A low and clump-forming shrub, sometimes a small tree. The Latin subspecies name, meaning rugose or wrinkled, refers to the network of sunken veins prominent on the lower leaf surfaces. more...
