Betula papyrifera

£12.50 - £30.00
Common Name: 
Paper Birch

2023/24 season now closed


An underused yet highly decorative conical tree. When young the stems are reddish-brown, covered in copious lighter dots. As the tree matures the bark becomes white and starts to peel in large layers, revealing the new pale orange-brown skin underneath. As the name suggests the bark really does look like paper as it peels off. Bears yellow catkins in spring and dark green leaves that turn brilliant hues of yellow and orange.
