Why Heritage River Birch Trees?

It's easy to understand why the 'Heritage' River Birch is such a popular tree. For starters, it's resistant to common diseases, grows up to 2 to 3 feet each year, and adapts to a variety of soil types. Plus, it's an elegant source of shade, with unique peeling bark that stands out in your landscape.

This distinctive tree is easy to grow, too, adding character in nicely landscaped yards from Minnesota to Florida. It adapts well to both wet and dry planting sites and tolerates modest drought and mild floods. Even better is its ability to resist strong wind, ice and other damaging elements. Basically, there's nothing the Heritage River Birch can't do.

Texas birch

These are awesome. Perfect for my front yard. Beautiful colors and size. They are very young right now but I can tell will be the perfect size when mature.

Always buy potted

The River Birch arrived in excellent condition and was planted the same day. It is as usual a strong plant and it is doing very well. We love the potted plants.

Grows Like Crazy

I planted 2 of these last April in Region 6. There's a corner of my backyard that gets somewhat spongy after it rains and these trees really love lots of water. By the end of the season they had grown as tall as the cyclone fence! They also made it fine through a very cold first winter when it never got warmer than 20 degrees between Xmas eve & the end of January (not counting wind chill). I've just purchased another this week.


Planting & Care

1. Planting: Birch Trees need a full day of sun (about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day) and well-drained soil.

Plant after all dangers of frost have passed. Select a spot that will receive about 8 hours of sunlight a day and have the roots/soil in a cool, shaded place. Dig a hole that is three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Keep the tree as straight as possible and begin to back fill the hole. Put a slow release of water on a hose and leave next to the root system area for a couple hours to be sure the depth is reached. Finally, spread a three-foot layer of mulch around the base of the tree with wood chips, shredded bark or leaf compost. 

2. Watering: Provide deep a watering for the Birch Tree weekly using a hose next to the base with a slow flow of water for 2 hours during growing season. You may need to increase to twice weekly during hot, dry summers. Proper mulching can assist with keeping the roots and soil moist. Reduce watering towards the end of August so your tree can winterize for its dormant stage.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize in the late spring and early summer with a product that targets root growth. Use an acidified evergreen fertilizer such as 10-10-10 because birch trees do better in soil that is slightly acidic.

4. Pruning: The best time to prune birch trees is late summer or early autumn. Start by removing side shoots and suckers first and then decide which branches to remove. Cut back branches that are less than 2 inches wide as close to the trunk as possible.
