It will grow to around 70ft (22m) Thriving in moist to wet ground it is a common inhabitant of riverbanks, low lying areas or upland areas with high rainfall. The leaves are slow to decay if they falll into water and as such the trees should not be planted too close to riverbanks. Nodules on roots which contain bacteria that 'fix' nitrogen make it a valuable species for enriching poor ground. The timber used to be used to make clogs. It dislikes chalky soil.
