Heritage® River Birch Growing and Maintenance Tips

One of the most disease and insect-free birches. Use as a specimen or in small groupings in any landscape, and in particular for wet soils along ponds, streams or in low spots. It can be grown as a single-stemmed specimen or multi-stemmed tree. 'Heritage' is known for its creamy-white, inner bark. Its dark green leaves with double-toothed margins are larger and glossier than the species.
