Alder is a fast growing deciduous tree with rounded leaves. Most varieties produce catkins which make a welcome winter display before the leaves. Alder ideal for creating a tall hedge or a windbreak and thrives in damp soil conditions, although it will also tolerate dry sites. It will reach an average height of 40ft+ if grown as a tree or can be regularly pruned to create a hedge 6ft+ tall.
