River Birch Seedlings 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. River Birch Seedlings can survive almost in any state in the United States. River Birch Seedlings are beloved for their 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 this tree the Urban Tree of the Year.

The River Birch makes a perfect shade tree but is often considered an ornamental tree as well. During the early years of the tree, it will provide dappled light shade, but River Birch Seedlings will provide a moderate tone as it matures. Its appeal is its new complement to any scenery. As you observe the River Birch Seedlings' life, you will notice that it grows around 13 to 24 inches a year.

 The Betula nigra, or river birch, is a species of birch tree 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 six and below.  

 Growing up to 80 to 100 feet tall with a trunk ranging from 20 to 60 inches in diameter, the tree's base 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 top side 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.
