CULTURE & USE; A hardy plant in most soils and aspects, an ideal tree for streets, parks and large
gardens when rapid growth is desirable. Minimum natural rainfall 600mm.
PRUNING; Some early formative pruning is often necessary to develop a single erect trunk; also some
judicious pruning may be required to maintain shape.
