Heritage™ Birch is a small to medium-sized tree that grows no more than 30 feet tall. This tree quickly grows into a picturesque specimen that will grace your garden with beauty and charm. It adds 2 feet a year, or even 3 feet a year in warmer areas, rapidly maturing into a beautiful tree in any garden. It has attractive bark in brown and tan, that is constantly peeling and curling away to reveal cream and white bark beneath. The delicate oval leaves hang from slightly-pendulous branches, casting only light shade. In fall the leaves turn glowing shades of pale gold. It grows in zone 4 through zone 9, and it is especially useful for wet, clay soils, growing even in flooded areas, while also thriving in ordinary garden conditions.

  • Top-choice birch tree for hotter areas
  • Very attractive bark in brown, tan, cream and white
  • Grows well in wet soil, and in heavy clay too
  • Smaller, airy tree for small gardens
  • Fast-growing for early maturity

Plant the Heritage™ Birch in full sun, and water it well while it is young, for the fastest growth. Unlike other birch trees, this tree does not suffer from the insect pests that shorten the life of other birch, so this easy tree will thrive and prosper for years and years, with no trouble at all. It has a naturally-denser branching structure than the common river birch, which is its parent, so it is much less prone to breakage from wind and ice. This lovely tree will grace any garden with its special beauty – while growing quickly and being easy to grow too.
