Very popular medium sized deciduous tree with a white trunk, pendulous branching and triangular shaped green foliage. Leaves turn golden in autumn before falling. Interesting small winged cone shaped fruit are also shed in autumn adding to interest.
Birches are often mass planted, which give a great effect of a natural plantation, normally planted in odd numbers but are also effective as a single feature tree.
