Celtis sinensis is commonly known as Chinese Hackberry and is a species of flowering tree in the Cannabaceae family. It is native to various regions in East Asia, including China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. This deciduous tree is known for its adaptability and has been introduced and cultivated in other parts of the world as an ornamental tree.

Appearance: Chinese Hackberry is a medium-sized tree that can grow up to 10-20 meters in height. It has a rounded crown and a moderately spreading canopy. The bark is grey to light brown, and the branches are often covered with corky ridges.

Leaves: The leaves are alternate, simple, and have a serrated or toothed margin. They are typically ovate or elliptical and have a glossy green colour. In the fall, the leaves turn yellow or yellow-green before shedding.

Flowers: The tree produces small, inconspicuous greenish flowers in spring, usually in April or May, depending on the region. The flowers are not showy, but they are an essential food source for pollinators.

Fruits: After flowering, Celtis sinensis develops small, round, berry-like fruits that ripen to a dark purple or black colour. These fruits are often eaten by birds, contributing to seed dispersal.

Habitat: Chinese Hackberry is adaptable to various soil types and can tolerate a range of environmental conditions, including both moist and dry sites. It is commonly found in woodlands, forests, and along riverbanks.

Uses: Celtis sinensis is valued as an ornamental tree in landscapes and urban areas due to its attractive foliage, interesting bark texture, and adaptability to urban conditions. It can be planted as a shade tree, street tree, or in parks and gardens.
