The glossy leaves are rust resistant helping to make the tree popular for landscape use, where it is often grown as a multi-trunked tree. Grows 15-20’ tall and wide.
Hawthorns are especially important trees for wildlife as their fruit is eaten by many birds, and their tangle of thorny branches often provides good cover to birds seeking shelter.
The wood of the hawthorn is known to be quite hard and is sometimes used in furniture making.
