Comments: A round-headed deciduous tree in maturity that is native to the Caucasus region and Iran. This magnificant tree has chestnut-like leaves, can exceed a height of 100' and can live for hundreds of years. Too large for average lawn, but good as a street tree or in a park. Very limited distribution and older trees not yet present in USA. It is fast growing and drought tolerant.
