Paper-barked thorn tree is a semi-deciduous to deciduous tree up to 18 m tall with a large and spreading flat crown. A good tree to have as a shade tree and extremely popular for open parking lots. It is a fast grower but young plants must be protected from cold wind and frost. Transplant very well. Fairly drought-resistant.
