Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

It prefers cool, deep soils and soft climates.

The wood is of great value for forges, as firewood and to make coal.

This species is grown in parks and gardens for the beauty of its foliage, its flowers and fruits. It can also be found as an isolated tree or to build green walls.

Times ago herbal tea was made out from the leaves for its diuretic and antiseptic properties. It was also an ingredient in alcoholic beverages. The bark and leaves have anti-inflamatory and diuretic properties. The fruit is also used to make marmelade, preserves and jam.

This tree is the symbol of the City of Madrid, Spain.
