 Medium to large-size deciduous tree, the Northern Hackberry ranges from 50 to 80 feet in height, with a spread of 40 to 60 feet. The Northern Hackberry plays host to many insects and caterpillars (which will in turn attract insectivorous birds), for this reason Kinglets and Warblers frequently browse the foliage of this tree. The Northern Hackberry also produces berries in the fall, which are very attractive to birds, particularly the Northern Mockingbird. This tree is commonly used for nesting.
