The Classic Birch with a Cold Hardy, Colorful Twist
Why Royal Frost® Birch Trees?
Vibrant purple foliage meets eye-catching exfoliating bark, making the Royal Frost® unlike any other. And since it boasts an upright, pyramidal habit, it's truly one-of-a-kind when it comes to your typical shade tree.
This lush tree offers vivid perks from season to season, making it even better. The sleek white bark during the winter months means nearly year-round visual interest, despite its deciduous nature.
Burgundy foliage emerges in the springtime, transitioning to deep purple and changing again to dramatic dark red in the winter. That means you get a showy tree that delights year-round, transforming drab wintry yards to landscapes worthy of front-page features.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Awesome experience, will purchase from them again
Both of my trees arrived on time and in good shape. They were good quality and sized as advertised. I have planted them both and they are already sending out new sprouts. I hope they last the winter.

The birch arrived in fine shape and is a beautiful specimen.
I’ve ordered 3 Royal Frost Birch and they are absolutely beautiful, multi trunk trees in perfect health and of good size. Fast Growing Trees is the only online nursery I’ve found that consistently delivers large, healthy plants and trees. Just placed another order with them!
I’ve placed orders with several online nurseries during stay at home orders and let me just say, Fast Growing Trees is the best! I have a total of 3 Royal Frost Birch trees and every single one is of good size, healthy, beautiful and bone of them were even remotely damaged from shipping. These folks know what they’re doing! Can’t wait to get the shrubs I ordered!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location for your Royal Frost® Birch Tree with full sun to partial shade (meaning the location receives at least 4 to 8 hours of sunlight each day). Also, the planting area’s soil should be somewhat moist though still well-drained.
When you’re ready to plant, start by digging a hole that’s at least two to three times the size of your tree’s root ball. After placing your Birch Tree, backfill the soil, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, and water.
2. Watering: Because the Royal Frost® Birch Tree needs consistently moist soil, it’s important to water weekly or consider using a soaker hose or bark mulch. The root zone for your tree should be cool and moist, but it does tolerate some dryness in the soil.
3. Pruning: The Royal Frost® Birch Tree needs very little pruning, but if pruning is necessary for your landscape, prune it during the dormant season.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
