The Birch Tree is elegant and instantly recognizable. Known for their unusual bark that peels like paper, these are true winter interest trees—but we absolutely love their vibrant gold foliage during fall, too!
FEATURED BIRCH TREES:
HERITAGE® RIVER BIRCH – SINGLE STEM
Betula nigra ‘Cully’ PP 4409
Birch trees are renowned for their beautiful bark, and Heritage® River Birch is no exception. All year long, its shaggy, peaches-and-cream-colored bark will be a standout in your landscape. Planting this fast-growing tree at one or more corners of your home is a classic way to frame your house and soften its edges. Landscape lighting adds extra drama at night. Have a low spot in your yard that stays soggy? Don’t go through all the effort of digging a French drain—plant a River Birch tree instead! This adaptable tree will happily soak up the extra moisture, though it doesn’t require wet soil to thrive.
AUDUBON® RIVER BIRCH – MULTI STEM
In creating your backyard bird sanctuary, start here. Trees are vital to that endeavor, and few trees have more to give to birds than River Birch. The seeds of this welcoming native shade tree feed countless songbirds, including chickadees, titmice, tanagers, cardinals, crossbills, sparrows, and pine siskins. Birds may nibble the buds and catkins (flowers), too. Insectivorous birds are not left out! It’s estimated that River Birch hosts an incredible 400-plus species of moth and butterfly caterpillars for their dining pleasure. River Birch is an obvious choice for your bird paradise—give it some serious consideration!
WHITEBARKED HIMALAYAN BIRCH – SINGLE STEM
Betula utilis var. ‘Jacquemonti’
Few trees in your landscape will get noticed more than White-Barked Himalayan Birch. You can highlight this drama queen at night with strategically angled landscape lighting, but you don’t have to, because that spanking-white bark is so bright it practically glows in the dark! Planted in front of evergreens or the dark brick or siding of your home, this flashy, fast-growing Birch tree will quickly make it clear who’s the star of the show. Though it’s an Asian species, White-Barked Himalayan Birch closely resembles our native Paper Birch, and like Paper Birch, it looks smashing planted in small groupings or groves. Underplant with daffodils and ferns for an unforgettable, low-maintenance vignette.
AUDUBON® SWEET BIRCH
Crack open a Birch beer and watch the birds cavort in your backyard Sweet Birch Tree!

But Sweet Birch is a boon to birds, too! Chickadees, sparrows, redpolls, Pine Siskins, towhees, crossbills, and cardinals are some of the many birds that gather to dine on its buds, blooms, and seeds. Insect-eating birds delight in the wide assortment of caterpillars Sweet Birch hosts as well. A choice addition to your backyard bird sanctuary.
