Carpinus betulus, also known as European hornbeam, is a popular choice for hedging due to its dense and bushy growth habit, which allows it to create a thick, formal-looking barrier.

Carpinus betulus is relatively easy to grow and maintain, and it can tolerate a wide range of soil types and conditions. It prefers full sun to partial shade and regular watering, but it can also withstand periods of drought.
