A tall suckering tree, with a pointed crown, it has early white summer flowers followed by a few, small brown nuts. The maple-like leaves are glossy dark green on the top side, and turn bronze-yellow in autumn. The flaky grey bark keeps cracking and peeling away, which is why it is also known as the chequer tree. Before the introduction of hops, the berries were used to flavour beer. In the wild it often indicates the site of an ancient woodland. It prefers rich, damp, well-drained soil but tolerates lighter, poorer ground.
