Elegant Tree with Chalk White Bark and Amazing Fall Color

Whitespire Birch is deciduous tree with distinctive color. One would look elegant in your front yard where it is sure to draw the eye year-round.

These are also often used as privacy screens along property lines due to their shape and coloring.

Your Whitespire Birch is a uniquely lovely tree. Tall and stately, with a straight trunk reaching up toward the sky, Whitespire presents its own best showcase for the chalk-white bark that decorates its trunk.

Unlike many other Birches, Whitespire’s showy bark does not exfoliate and its strong, central leader promotes a refined pyramidal form. Bright green leaves and dangling catkins provide summer interest, with green foliage merging into brilliant yellow for fall color.

Whitespire Birch grows at a medium to fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years.

It has a higher disease resistance than most other Birch trees, is heat tolerant and adaptive to most soil conditions.

It’s even considered to be resistant to Bronze Birch Borer (a dangerous pest of Birch trees). Once established, Whitespire Birch is very low maintenance.

If you love the chalky-white coloring of Birch trees, but not their sometimes problematic nature, then Whitespire Birch is for you. Disease and pest resistant, long-lived and lovely, Whitespire is an outstanding choice for your yard today.

* White, non-exfoliating bark
* Medium to fast growing
* Heat tolerant

I love the yellow fall color & white bark of birch trees and whitespire's seem to grow pretty fast. Happy with my purchase.
Great contrast Review by Graffy
I bought the #1 size. It's going to take a while for it to grow up. I love the whitespire birch for the bark & amazing fall color. I'm actually pleasantly surprised how much it's grown in the month it's been in the ground.
