The Dakota Pinnacle® Birch is a slender pyramidal tree, growing 3 to 5 feet a year and reaching 30 feet within 10 years. It will only be 10 feet wide by then, and the branches are retained right to the ground, making an attractive accent specimen for a lawn, or for screening. It can be planted in the corners of your yard, or at the back of beds, and its butter yellow fall leaves make a beautiful display. Slender catkins decorate the bare branches in early spring. This very hardy and wind-resistant tree is ideal for northern gardeners, and unlike many other birch, it is very tolerant of urban conditions.

  • Graceful slender pyramidal form to 30 feet and more
  • Dark green leaves turn golden yellow in fall
  • Very cold resistant, and wind resistant too
  • Ideal specimen tree for all northern areas
  • Good resistance to bronze birch borer

Plant the Dakota Pinnacle Birch in full sun or partial shade, in any ordinary to wet soil. It tolerates alkaline soils, clay soils and some drought, in cooler climates. It needs no trimming to keep its slender form, and it has good resistance to the bronze birch borer. It is entirely hardy in zone 3 and all the cooler states to zone 6 or 7. If you have hot and humid summers, use mulch to keep the roots cool, and avoid drought stress by watering regularly.
