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.
