The common hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is a medium-sized tree, growing to about 80 feet tall. Its trunk can grow up to 3 feet across. The hornbeam is native to Central Europe and over to the Caucasus. It tends to only reach 150 years of age or so, making it rather average in terms of longevity.
The wood of the hornbeam is very hard and is in fact one of the hardest species native to Central Europe. The wood is rather simple and very light, almost white. It is very hard, heavy, and very dense. It is still used for hardwood flooring, planer bases, and tool blocks, but it also has its use in instrument making, namely as hammers for the piano. Historically, its use was much more extensive because of its hardness, including looms, gears, and shoe lasts.
