HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR THE RIVER BIRCH
If you’re in search of a distinctive, fast-growing tree that adds both beauty and character to your landscape, the River Birch (Betula nigra) might be the ideal selection. Renowned for its peeling bark that reveals a striking array of colors from salmon-pink to creamy white, the River Birch is a favorite for its unique visual appeal. Typically reaching heights of 40 to 70 feet with a spread of 25 to 35 feet, this tree is perfect for adding a touch of rustic elegance to any setting.
The River Birch is not only admired for its ornamental bark but also for its diamond-shaped, glossy green leaves that turn yellow in the fall. It thrives particularly well in wet conditions, making it an excellent choice for planting near water features or in damp areas of your landscape.
When considering planting a River Birch, keep in mind its preference for full sun to partial shade and moist, acidic soil. This tree is especially tolerant of wet soils, but it’s adaptable and can also withstand drier conditions once established, making it a versatile choice for various landscapes.
Pruning is typically minimal and is best done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged branches and to maintain its natural, multi-trunked form.
Choosing a River Birch for your landscape is more than just planting a tree; it’s about introducing a dynamic, visually engaging element that changes with the seasons. Its adaptability and unique appearance make it a standout choice for those looking to add natural beauty and interest to their outdoor space.
