River Birch Tree

Betula Nigra is a medium-sized, well-shaped deciduous tree that most people select for its ability to grow in overly wet conditions. It will grow well in muddy, humid, and hot conditions in the full sun or filtered sunshine throughout USDA plant hardiness zones 4 through 9.

Whether you call it by its most common name, the river birch, or by its alternative monikers, black birch, water birch, weeping river birch, or red birch, this water-loving species is ideal for the wettest spots in your garden.

Wholesale Nursery suggests this tree for customers who have standing water challenges. They often have a property with a Natural spring and Natural Plants , creek, pond, floodplain, or other reasons for heavy, consistently moist soil.

The river birch tree is up for these challenges. This tree is a North American native species, often noted along river beds in heavily forested areas. It will flourish in spots where other trees would falter.

The primary consideration when you plant a river birch tree is its location. It is a very thirsty tree, so if you are not planting it near a natural water source, access to a hose is a must. Once it takes root, Betula Nigra takes care of itself with no assistance from you.

The River Birch Tree Is an Extremely Attractive Species

This species is handsome--multi-trunked with an open, arched oval crown. Its bark and branches are a lovely shade of light gray or light brown and have exfoliating bark, which sheds in long, paperlike strips.

The leaves of the river birch tree alternate along the stems. They have an oval shape with a notable point and visible veins. They form loosely, creating many nooks and crannies for wildlife to nest or take refuge from the sunshine.
