Heritage River BirchBetula nigra 'Heritage'
Heritage River Birch is a fast-growing, ornamental tree with layers of cinnamon, salmon and brown bark peeling back sheets to reveal creamy white inner bark. It can reach heights of 40-50 feet with a spread of 25-40 feet. Lovely dark green leaves, turning a beautiful yellow in fall, support its pyramidal, upright, graceful crown. It can be grown as either a single-trunk or multi-stemmed tree.
Use and Management
The Heritage grows fast, is cold tolerant and heat tolerant, and resists flooding as well as drought, nicely forked, and wind and ice resistant. Plant it as a specimen tree to create a focal point at entrances or in patios. Plant three to five trees in a mass planting to create a focal point to be viewed from a kitchen nook or great room.
