A Fast-Growing Tree with Ornamental Bark 

The Heritage Birch tree, Betula nigra 'Cully', is a fast-growing cultivar of River Birch tree. It would do well as a specimen planting for your yard, especially in low areas or along a pond or stream.

The Heritage Birch tree is a type of River Birch that is faster-growing and has larger and shinier leaves than other River Birch. In fact, depending upon where you live, you may see it grow up to 30 inches a year!

Its exceptional feature is the exfoliating bark that will create an unusual visual affect for your yard year round. Layers of brown and salmon peel from the trunk to reveal the creamy bark inside, creating a shaggy appearance that is sure to draw your eye from wherever you are in your yard.

The Heritage Birch trees can grow to 60 feet in height with a 40 foot spread to its narrow, pyramidal form. You can grow it as a single or multi-stemmed tree.

The foliage is a rough triangle shape that turns a pleasant yellow in the fall. It is disease and pest resistant, and many types of birds value it for nesting, seed and cover. Several butterfly species also value it as a larval food source, and it’s deer resistant.

The Heritage Birch tree is a fast-growing, carefree, hardy tree that stops people in their tracks when they notice the unique exfoliated bark. It would be an excellent choice for your yard as a tree that has year-round interest.
