The River Birch tree, Betula Nigra, is a very handsome tree for estates, parks, golf courses and any other large areas. It displays a light reddish brown cinnamon bark that peels and flakes to give that beautiful look that the birch family is noted for. Plant as a specimen, or as a windbreak, plant 20? apart in the row. It is excellent in wet soil. The River Birch has dark green summer foliage and turns a golden yellow in the fall. Best adapted to moist, acid soils, but will survive dry soils. Not bothered by the bronze birch borer. Native, graceful branching, easy to transplant; best not to prune in spring - sap "bleeds" and is heat tolerant. This deciduous tree can withstand extended periods of flooding. The River Birch trees are beautiful in the summer and winter, are widely adaptable, and heat tolerant.
