Medium. A lovely tree used for its wonderful white bark and neat habit, which is consistent and uniform. Very useful tree. A great ‘winter interest’ tree with its white peeling bark and 12cm long catkins produced before the leaves shoot in April. Betula utilis varieties have the largest leaf of all birch. Produced as a multi-stem with breaks close to ground level, it is ideal for planting in grass areas. A lovely single specimen - living sculpture.
