Medium-sized tree with a well-shaped, ovoid crown. At first the crown is narrow, but later it becomes considerably better. Eventual height can be 20 m at a maximum. The tree has a clearly upright trunk with a yellow-white colour and a greyish hue. The triangular to ovate leaf has 7 - 11 distinct pairs of veins and is acuminate. The margin is regularly double-serrated. 'Holland' sprouts early in spring. The conspicuous, yellow autumn colouring starts early and the tree also sheds its leaves early. The male and female catkins appear with the leaf. The tree is shallow rooting with a dense root system and with many fibrous rootlets. Is susceptible to (coastal) winds.
