 Betula nigra, also known as river birch, is a sturdy tree that is found in the southeastern region of the United States.  

  This deciduous tree is known to generally grow between 40 to 70 feet when fully mature. However, some river birch trees have grown to 90 feet while the spread measures 40 to 60 feet. 

  The growth rate ranges from medium to rapid. Typically a river birch will grow about 30 to 40 feet within a 20-year time frame. This tree is part of the riparian tree species that are usually found in areas that have water such as lakes and streams. Some river birch trees thrive in areas that are prone to flooding. 

  A beautiful feature that attracts gardeners and landscapers to this unique tree is the bark.

The bark has a pink to red tone on the stems and branches. The bark naturally peels off the tree in strips that resemble paper. The peeled bark exposes the interior of the tree which is a red-brown tone that often looks like cinnamon. The exfoliating bark and silhouette of the tree make it stand out among the rest of the trees.

  River birch trees are used for naturalizing or as a specimen. It thrives in large areas near water sources. This elegant tree transplants easily and thrives while standing alone or when planted in groupings. 

  The branches require pruning during the summer season. River birch trees look great on the property and are best when planted away from high traffic areas such as patios and walkways.
