    As we were using these trees in a wedding ceremony, it was important that we got them on time and in good condition. They are perfect.

    We needed something else to go around our lake and boy I am glad that we chose this type of tree. We dont have to worry about watering it because it pulls all the moisture it needs from the lake since we planted it close to the edge.

Description

River Birch Tree - Betula Nigra  For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

River Birch got its name because of how common it was to find them near river banks. Despite it growing in that terrain in the wild it adapts well to other landscapes and can survive almost in any state in the United States. It's beloved for its fast growth, unique and exciting curling bark, its tolerance to water and drought as well as its large spreading limbs. In 2002 the Municipal Arborists named the River Birch Tree the Urban Tree of the Year.

During the early years of the tree, it will provide spotted light shade, but as it matures, it will be able to provide moderate shade. Its appeal is its interesting compliment on any scenery. As you observe this trees life, you will notice that it grows around 13 to 24 inches a year. The Betula Nigra loves the sunlight so when choosing a home for it find a spot that gets at minimum 6 hours of daylight. If it has to, it can tolerate some shade.

The River Birch shows the most success when it's grown in loamy, sandy, acidic, well-drained soils and clay soils. It can deal with a conservative amount of flooding and even a limited amount of drought. When the temperatures are hot, it will appreciate it if you provide additional watering. The leaves are somewhat triangular and are typically a deep green color. Whitetail deer and other browsing animals enjoy the foliage. Songbirds love the seeds that the trees produce. As the tree matures, the bark will become a cinnamon brown color that will curl and peel off in time.

River Birch Tree 

 

The Betula nigra, or river birch, is a species of a birch tree that is native to the Eastern U.S. It grows from New Hampshire to southern Minnesota down to Texas and Florida. Although most birches are cold-weather trees, the river birch is heat-tolerant. Therefore, this particular type of birch thrives in zones 6 and below. 

 

 

 

 Growing up to 80 to 100 feet tall with a trunk ranging from 20 to 60 inches in diameter, the base of the tree may be divided into multiple slender trunks. The bark of a river birch tree changes from youth to maturity to old age. Young river birches have a bark that ranges from salmon pink to brownish-gray as the tree grows and matures, its bark transitions to reddish-brown with a dark gray base. The scales on the tree also become closely-pressed into thick plates. In old age, the scales become divided into deep furrows and are thicker toward the base of the tree's trunk. Leaves grow from 1 1/2 to 3 1/4 inches long and 1 1/4 to 2 1/4 inches broad. On the topside of the leaves is dark green while the underside is a light greenish-yellow color. The river birch bears fruit that matures in late spring.
