Like beech a Hornbeam hedge will keeps its leaves all year round, providing shelter, roosting, nesting and foraging opportunities for birds and small mammals. Hornbeam is often confused with common beech but its leaf buds are shorter and slightly curved at the tips. Its leaves are smaller and more deeply furrowed than beech leaves, becoming golden yellow to orange before falling in autumn.
