Native to almost the entire US east of the Mississippi River, the River Birch is common near streams and rivers where it serves as a staple in local environments. It's famous shaggy bark and vertical stature makes for an impressive, if somewhat flaky, tree. River Birches reach heights of 50-70' with growth rates nearing 24" annually. Ideal for wetter areas in residential areas and near creek beds, the River Birch grows where Oak and Elm cannot hold. Photos of this tree were taken in zip code 53554.
