Comments: A densely pyramidal tree that maintains low branches, because of this it cast a heavy shade. Will not grow in compacted or wet, poorly drained soils. Has shallow root system and will not tolerate very little traffic. Some confusion as to where this selection, Asplenifolia' and 'Laciniata' are different are the same cultivar. Has smooth gray bark.
