Locally, the hornbeam is common in the Netherlands: in South Limburg, parts of Gelderland and parts of North Brabant namely the Kempen. The south of West Flanders also has many natural hornbeams. The Carpinus is often planted as a hedge and park tree. The hornbeam has a long service life. It is a slow-growing tree, which prefers to grow on a moderately fertile, loamy soil. The common hornbeam can grow up to 25 meters high and grow wide with a crown diameter of 10 meters.

. The hornbeam can be pruned excellently and is therefore very suitable as Bonsai. The beech (Fagus sylvaticus) is also used as a hedge, which is very confusing due to the Dutch naming. A beech hedge is different from a hornbeam hedge. The hornbeam can withstand changing water levels much better than the beech. On the clay, therefore, the hornbeam is quickly a better choice. Where a pruned beech leaves the dead, brown leaves hanging in winter, the hornbeam is more or less bare. However, the hornbeam runs beautifully and soaks earlier than the beech.
