River Birch Trees are considered a fast growing tree with a graceful shape that can be seen from estate landscapes to planted on river banks. River birches transplant easily at any age and is truly one of those plant it and forget about it trees. Although the River Birch Tree lacks the white peeling bark that is associated with some birch trees, this birch variety distinguishes itself by its reddish, brown to bronze colored bark peeling off in papery curls.
Whether you have a large property with a river running through it, or a smaller yard you can use the River Birch as an anchor tree. You will love the look and feel of this tree.
You can plant 2 to 3 trees together to form a clump, or just as a strong single stemmed tree. Very attractive landscape tree!
