Description

This upright-oval tree has the whitest bark of any birch which peels, with green foliage that will turn yellow for fall. Best when situated in full sun but will also tolerate some light shade. For optimum growth it’s best to cover the area near the trunk with a thick layer of mulch or install an evergreen groundcover in order to protect and shade the roots.
