A much used tree with a dense, closed crown. Is grafted on a stem of A. platanoides, usually at 2.2. m high. In the first years the crown is round-headed, when maturing it spreads out, thus assuming a flattened spherical shape. The crown becomes circa 6 m across. When unfurling the leaf has a slightly brown-red hue, later it turns into dark green. In autumn it is intense yellow. The inflorescence is of the species. This tree is less suited for narrow avenues and streets due to its wide crown. 'Globosum' can be applied splendidly on squares and in shopping areas. The cultivar demands little from the soil and is not wind sensitive. Is tolerant to drought.
