River Birch Live Stakes Description

River Birch Live Stakes, Betula Nigra are Hardy Planting Zones 4-9

River Birch Live Stakes is also known as Betula Nigra. Hardy planting zones are 4-9. The growth rate at maturity can reach 40-70 feet tall and 40-60 feet wide. This tree will have brown (male) and green (female) blooms from April to May. This low-maintenance tree will make an excellent shade tree and help cut cooling costs by shading the hot afternoon heat. It is deer and drought-tolerant.

It is also wet soil, air pollution, and clay soil tolerant. Plant it in full sun to part shade and in medium to moist, average soil. Avoid pruning at certain times of the year, like when the sap is running. This variety is one of the more disease-free birches than most others. It has reddish pink to brown bark that will shed and reveal a lighter inner one. Leaves will turn yellowish in the fall and look like they are dropping.

 River Birch Live Stakes, Betula Nigra is a Highly Ornamental, Low Maintenance Tree that is an Excellent Shade Producer

The cinnamon-colored bark is highly ornamental, as it sheds continually. The accumulated bark near the bottom of the tree deters weeds and other plants from growing near it. This oval-shaped tree features glossy green leaves with a silvery-white underside, gold leaves in the fall, green or brown flowers in spring, and 1-3 inch fruit. Songbirds appreciate the tiny, plentiful seeds while deer browse on the leaves. Fallen leaves disintegrate quickly, making less raking necessary.
