Product Description

There's something special about birch trees—those slender trunks with light-colored, exfoliating bark are iconic. It's both nostalgic and perfectly at home in modern settings. If you're wistful for birch trees, Northern Tribute is our top choice. For the last 40 years, it has proven itself sturdy and easy. It is the most adaptive river birch for dry and alkaline soil. It's also tolerant of clay and wet soils. It'll stand icy cold winters all the way up through zone three with no damage. And that frustrating bronze birch borer? Northern Tribute is resistant to it. This river birch grows quickly, easily and dependably in the home garden…and it looks good, too. Northern Tribute boasts ivory bark with coppery exfoliation, and the leaves turn that classic yellow in fall. Betula nigra 'Dickinson'
