In a Nutshell:
* Celtis occidentalis, commonly known as the Common hackberry, is a large deciduous tree native to North America. It is also known as the nettletree, beaverwood, northern hackberry, and American hackberry. It is a moderately long-lived hardwood with a light-colored wood, yellowish gray to light brown with yellow streaks.
* Usually the common hackberry forms a medium sized tree, thirty to fifty feet in height, with a slender trunk; however, it can rise to the height of one hundred and thirty feet, in the best conditions in the southern Mississippi valley area.
* Ridjica and Sombor in Serbia (where it is called kustelic or galagunja) and Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is known for the extensive use of hackberry as a street tree. more...
