Sometimes cultivated for its edible seed, there are some named varieties. Trees take 25 - 30 years before they commence bearing seeds and peak production does not begin until they are about 80 years old. Trees thrive in Britain, often bearing fruit. Trees are planted for timber in Germany. Plants are strongly tap-rooted and should be planted in their permanent positions as soon as possible. Sowing in situ would be the best method so long as the seed could be protected from mice. Trees are late coming into leaf (usually late May to June) and lose their leaves early in the autumn (usually in October). During this time they cast a heavy shade. These factors combine to make the trees eminently suitable for a mixed woodland planting with shrubs and other trees beneath them. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus. Most species in this genus have quite a wide range of distribution and, in order to find trees more suited to this country, seed from the most appropriate provenances should be sought. Most trees growing in Britain at present tend to only produce good seed after hot summers.Trees are self-fertile but larger crops of better quality seeds are produced if cross-pollination takes place.
