Betula nigra
Betula nigra
Common Name: River Birch
A moderate to slow-growing, medium-sized tree with beautiful, exfoliating, reddish-brown to silvery-gray bark. Can be grown with a single trunk or as a multi-stemmed tree. The leaves cast a light, dappled shade and the fall leaf color is yellow. Normally found in lowlands, River Birch planted in deep, rich soils will develop best, but it will also grow in clay soils. Whitetail deer browse the young twigs and buds, while turkey, quail, songbirds and small mammals eat the tiny, abundant seeds.
