    Dark green leaves which turn attractive shades of yellow in autumn. This vigorous tree has pure white bark which looks stunning in winter and in spring, yellow-brown male catkins are produced. This is a lovely tree that can cope with most soils and even exposed gardens, though it does get to be a large tree.

    All the Betulas we supply are single-stemmed, but they can be planted close together to creat a multi-stemmed effect.

  • Garden care: Birches dont need much pruning, but you may want to remove any diseased or crossing branches. It is essential that any pruning work is carried out between late summer to mid winter as the sap will 'bleed' heavily at other times. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting and stake well.
