River Birch Seedlings is a Fast Growing Deciduous

River Birch Seedlings is a fast-growing, deciduous tree that will grow in zones 4-9. It is native to the Eastern United States from Minnesota and New Hampshire down to Texas and Florida. It can grow as much as 13-24 inches per year. When it has matured, the River Birch will reach a height of 40-70 feet with a spread of 40-60 feet. It performs best when it is planted in full sun to partial shade. This tree needs a minimum of 4 hours a day of unfiltered, direct sunlight.

This low-maintenance tree thrives in acidic, sandy, moist, well-drained soil. It does tolerate some moderate flooding, as well as some drought conditions. Do NOT plant. It is very alkaline soil. It is typically found along lakeshores and on floodplains. The River Birch Seedlings have leathery green leaves that measure about 2-3 inches long; They are diamond-shaped with double-toothed margins alternately arranged. The leaves turn a beautiful yellow color in the fall. In May or June, catkins will begin to appear. Catkins are cylindrical, thin flower clusters that have no petals. They are either green or brown. The catkins will mature from May to June and give way to a large number of small nutlets. The River Birch has a very unusual bark that curls and peels.
