The superior Celtis caucasica, also known as the Caucasian Hackberry or Nettle Tree, is a durable deciduous marvel displaying resilience and longevity. Characterized by its very tough, elastic and high-quality wood, it also serves as an excellent fuel source. The Caucasian Hackberry can live up to a remarkable 1000 years, presenting an ornament of nature that transcends generations. This 45 ft tall tree glorifies landscapes with slender pendulous branches, young pubescent shoots, and leaves measuring 4-10 x 2-5 cm. The leaves, rhomboid-ovate in shape, possess an unequal, rounded base and become glabrous or scabrid when mature. It also boasts small, pale green flowers with 4-5 perianth lobes. The tree matures to produce a reddish-brown, subglobose drupe, approximately 7mm. The species thrives in any decent soil, ideally a fertile, well-drained loamy ground, but will also endure dry gravels and sandy soils. Once established, these trees exhibit significant drought resistance. Designed for hotter summers and more sunlight, these trees are a perfect choice for warmer climates.
