A tall tree with a broadly rounded top and glossy green leathery leaves. Holm Oak forms a magnificent sturdy hedge that is not broken by even the strongest of winds. It is not suitable for very cold areas and will need some protection from the cold when young.
Fruit: The spring catkins produce acorns which can be used to feed pigs.
Timber: The timber is strong and hard. It can be used making charcoal and is manufactured into tool and furniture.
Soil Types / Habitat: It grows well in most soil but prefers dry well drained soil. Grows by the sea.
