Birch Tree

Birch trees are prized for their outstanding bark characteristics and their graceful delicate foliage. They are ideally suited to an area where the soil will remain cool and moist, but where the tree will receive full sunshine on its leaves for much of the day. Excellent locations for a birch tree is on the east and north sides of a home where the building provides afternoon shade. A healthy birch tree should be able to survive and thrive for 40-50 years.
