Carpinus betulus L. ??


Sorry but the leaf shape looks completely wrong for Carpinus betulus…. common name Hornbeam.

Veins and leaf edges are different in Hornbeam.
I would have said Betula sp… a birch tree.

I agree with …


These are my pics of Carpinus betula:
Young leaves, mature leaves, catkins and seed.
Betula…too hard for me to say which sp.


I guess it could be Carpinus betulus L. !


leaves seem like Betula alnoides.

if tree trunk pics available i can differentiate it Carpinus or Betula.
