Birch trees are a lovely group of smaller trees for the smaller gardens that are popular today. They have a special charm, with attractive bark, delicate branches against a winter sky and rounded leaves that sway in the breeze. There are several types of birch trees, both native and foreign, but the Black Birch is one of the most attractive, with smooth cherry-colored bark that has attractive horizontal markings. The leaves are delicate pointed ovals and the pendulous catkins that hang from the bare branches in spring are a great feature of this special tree. It is hardy into zone 3, so it is an ideal tree for colder areas.

  • Ideal birch tree for the coldest parts of the country
  • Not affected by major pests of other birch trees
  • Attractive shiny red bark with horizontal stripes
  • Grows well in heavy soil and clay
  • Perfect smaller tree for small gardens

Since it is not affected by serious pests, this tree is a great replacement for the White Birch, which is often killed by pests. Black Birch is also the natural source of oil of wintergreen and it can be tapped like a maple for syrup, which is dark and rich in flavor.
