Plants can be damaged in severe winters when young but they become hardier with age. They succeed at Crarae in western Scotland. Prefers a cool wet summer in a temperate maritime climate but it also does well in a Mediterranean climate with as little as 400mm of rain a year. A very ornamental tree, it often self-sows in Britain. Responds well to coppicing. Trees have poor wind resistance in Britain, probably because they grow so fast. Trees up to 4 metres tall can be successfully established, though the optimum size for transplanting is about 30 - 80cm. The roots are very sensitive to desiccation and extreme care should be taken when moving plants.Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus.
