    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

The White Paper Birch Makes a Statement

The White Trunk Makes this a Distinctive Ornamental Tree
Once mature (give it 3-5 years) the trunk turns white and the bark actually “peels” into small sheets. Plant this tree as an ornamental and enjoy the striking distinction of its white bark year-round. 

It’s a wonderful accompaniment to greenery and bright florals in the spring and summer months. You’ll appreciate its beauty in autumn and winter too.  As the leaves fall and colors dull around your landscape with the change of seasons, your White Paper Birch continues to add interest with its unique white trunk.

Destined to be Your Favorite Shade Tree of All Time
In addition to the distinctive white trunk, you’ll get additional bonuses when large bright green leaves sprout.  The leaves are 2” to 4” long and provide ample shade to assist in cooling your home during warmer months. 

To accompany the vast leaves, bright yellow flowers blossom between April and May.  The combination of the white, yellow and green hues is truly remarkable!

Very Fast Growing
The growth rate of White Paper Birches makes them the preferred trees to plant in areas where trees were lost to fire, and in areas where many trees were cut down.

They tend to have one single trunk when they’re growing in the forest.  Often, when planted in a landscape setting, they can develop multiple trunks, providing even more flowering branches of colorful leaves and flowers.  

Wildlife are Attracted to it
Your White Paper Birch produces a sap that yellow-bellied sapsuckers love.  This enterprising woodpecker pokes holes in the bark to retrieve the sap, then hummingbirds and squirrels swoop in to delight in the treat made possible by the woodpecker. 

Moose and white-tailed deer will eat the leaves and bark from the trunk, as will porcupines.

For animal lovers, it’s always a treat to look out and discover a new four-legged friend that enjoys your tree as much as you do!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your White Paper Birch


White Paper Birch Planting Diretions

The White Paper Birch tree can be planted in practically any type of soil.  It will withstand most conditions except extreme wet or extreme dry climates. 

 

They grow naturally in the forest in full sunlight, surrounded by others in their own species. If you want to plant them in groups, they should be spaced 3-9 feet apart.

 

If space is limited, you can plant 3 in the same hole with their roots touching.  As they mature, you’ll get the appearance of one multi-stemmed tree.

 

This tree does well if planted alone too. It doesn’t require a lot of space to provide abundant shade and beauty to your landscape.

Does the tree need full sun?
Joseph A on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The trees have only been in the ground a month so I don't really know. So far I have four green leaves which is progress. I planted in an area that provides about seven hours of sun each day.
How big is the root system ?
Lou C on Jan 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: At first the roots will fan out maybe 4-8 inches think just under the surface then percolate through the soil. The rootball can double in size during the 1st year and continue growing outward until reaching the drip line of 35 feet.
