3 White Birch Trees

( 12" - 14" )

(Betula papyrifera)

Birch Family (Betulaceae)

White Birch trees are a hardwood, deciduous which can grow up to 75 feet
tall and occasionally reach over 90 feet in height.

Their leaves are alternate, slender-stalked, simple, egg-shaped to
triangular, sharply pointed at tip, straight to rounded or slightly
heart-shaped at base.  The upper surface is dull green with a paler
under side, and slightly hairy with margins singly to doubly shallowly
toothed from tip.

White Birch trees can live in all moisture regimes and soil textures.

One of the best known traditional uses of birch by aboriginal peoples is
the construction of birch-bark canoes.  These peoples also used birch
bark as a waterproof layer on wigwams and to make items such as torches,
funnels, splints, spoons, dishes and artwork. Birch bark was often
wrapped around foodstuffs and sometimes ever bodies to prevent their
decay.  In emergency situations, birch bark can be used to protect eyes
from damage that may be caused by the extreme brightness of the sun
reflecting on snow.  Placing strips of birch bark over the eyes protects
them while allowing some visibity through the natural openings in the bark.

These White Birch Trees are on average twelve to fourteen inches tall at
time of shipping and have a good root system.

They are sold without soil and the roots are carefully washed and
wrapped in moist towel.

All items are shipped express.
