Its natural habitat is boggy land and river banks. However it is also very good for urban plantings as it thrives in all soils and tolerates air pollution. It is available as both multi-stemmed and as a single stem.

Alnus glutinosa is a wonderful host to a wide range of wildlife. It is a very useful tree where the ground is liable to flood and can survive many weeks with its roots under water.
