A vigorous, fast growing tree, excellent for use as a specimen or in small groups. The reddish brown outer bark exfoliates to reveal a lighter brown inner bark. Leathery, dark green leaves turn yellow in fall before dropping. Drooping catkins are showy in mid spring.

  • One of the most disease free birches
  • Multi trunk habit
  • Dark green leaves turn yellow in autumn
  • Tolerant or deer, drought, clay soil, wet soil and pollution
  • Plant is grown in a 5 gal. pot, has multiple stems, and ships in pot unless state or federal regulations require otherwise, approximately 5 ft. tall after planting
  • This plant ships as a bare root plant with no soil and no pot when shipped to Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington
  • When shipped as a bare root plant, the shake & ship system will be used to remove soil from the roots, thus increasing the root tip surface area, which in turn, greatly enhances the ability of the plant to rapidly establish itself in the new environment
  • May ship in a dormant state, with bare branches and no leaves, especially in early spring
  • Performs best in plant growing zones 4 to 9, when grown in other zones, special care will be necessary
  • To accommodate mature size or when planting in groups, space 10 ft. away from other plants or structures

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Native tree does well in rainy spring planting This potted tree was delivered upside down and we left it in the carton about a week before transplanting it into the ground. In spite of this callous treatment, this lovely river birch tree is flourishing. Lots of rain and sun and kind words probably helped. Also, the tree is native to this region, which makes it likely to do well. Spring planting is also better than fall, we have discovered. June 7, 2014
