A beautiful tree prized for its incredible highly textural, peeling bark. Heritage River Birch provides striking winter interest. A versatile, highly heat tolerant tree that can thrive in settings with high water tables and problematic low wet soils, yet adapts to mild drought when established. Extremely resistant to bronze birch borer and leaf spot diseases. Heritage river birch is one of our fastest growing shade trees and will get 30-50 feet tall and wide.
