  River Birch Tree




 
Alternative Views:


The River Birch is one of the most recognizable and beautiful trees for any landscape. The River Birch sheds its bark constantly and is much more resilient and heat tolerant than the white, Paper Birch. The wood grain of the River Birch is not uniform and full of knots, making it poor choice for lumber. As the bark exfoliates, it accumulates at the base of the River Birch and prevents competition of other plants nearby. The River Birch Tree is a very fast-growing shade tree that grows up to 90 ft tall. River birch trees can be purchased as single trunk specimen or as a multi-trunk shade tree, and the tree has glossy, green, diamond-shaped leaves that are silvery white underneath.

River Birch Shade Trees
The River Birch Tree is very popular for landscaping at estates, golf courses, and metropolitan locations, and is a extremely popular yard tree and is used because it thrives easily everywhere and has very ornamental peeling bark.

The River Birch Tree thrives in hot, humid locations, reaching 90 ft. in height at maturity, with golden yellow foliage in the Fall. The River Birch tree is an outstanding shade tree that can drastically cut your electricity bill and save you great sums of money. One of the fastest growing shade trees, the River Birch can grow vigorously in almost every state of the U.S. Surviving temperatures of minus 35 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only will the River Birch grow in extreme cold conditions but it grows vigorously in extreme heat of humid summers even in droughts and not surprisingly in wet swampy locations. The River Birch is one of the most recognizable shade trees because of its shedding annually layers of bark, that drops underneath the tree as a beneficial mulch that prevents aggressive competition from weeds or other plants nearby.

Sometimes the River Birch can be purchased as a multi-trunk shade tree, although it is normally thought of as best growing with a single trunk. Because the River Birch is so fast growing to provide shade and the unique dramatic character of the bark, the River Birch is extremely popular to use in landscapes of golf courses, estates, metropolitan parks and recreational areas. The leaves of the River Birch tree are glossy green with a diamond shape that are silvery white on the underside, and in the fall the River Birch tree glows yellow with its fall color. The River Birch tree is a unique plant, easily identified by it's shedding bark.

Birch trees may tolerate full sun as well as partial shade and prefer moist acidic soil, however, the River Birch can withstand summer temperatures or flooding better than any other birch. Such resilience makes the River Birch adaptable to environments ranging from water banks to ornamental landscapes.

As a landscape tree,??? the fast growing river birch tree is well adapted to grow in almost every State, and survives the coldest temperatures and the most stressful conditions of droughts or flooding. River birch trees can grow in clumps (clusters) or as single trunk specimens in the landscape and are well adapted to plant at home entrances, along walkways or street corners. The leaves turn bright gold during the fall and do not form burdens for leaf raking at leaf-drop but disintegrate easily.
