Birch (Betula pendula)


Bareroot hedging available November - March 

Betula pendula (Silver Birch)

Betula pendula (Silver Birch) is a beautiful, conical tree with characteristic peeling white bark, which over time becomes marked with contrasting dark fissures at the base. Its dark green leaves turn yellow in autumn and yellow-brown catkins are produced in spring. Silver birch makes an excellent screening tree, and will reach an eventual height of 40ft+ (can be kept smaller with pruning). They are fast growing trees, tolerant of very exposed conditions
