River Birch Features

Renown for its unique, flaky bark, the River Birch (betula nigra) is a versatile, fast growing tree that is often used to frame the corner of a house due its shallow and unobtrusive roots. Can tolerate wet soils and dry summers, but as a general rule of thumb, the River Birch prefers ample amounts of water.
