Cherry Birch Betula lenta Alderman Birch, Spire Birch

Description: The largest of the birches. This very large tree has a rounded crown of spreading and drooping branches, usually growing alone or in loose stands. USDA Zones: 3b - 8a Height: 45' feet to 75 feet Diameter: 6 - 12 inches Type: Deciduous Leaves: 3/4-2" (2-5 cm) long, 3/4-1" (2-2.5 cm) wide. Ovate; sharply and often doubly saw-toothed; usually with 4-5 veins on each side. Dark green above, pale yellow-green with tiny gland-dots beneath; turning dull yellow in autumn. Bark: Shiny, dark brown; smooth, with horizontal lines, not peeling to slightly peeling, depending on environmental influences. Twigs: Greenish, slender, with gland-dots. Soil: Most soils work very well for birch trees. Soil pH optimally 6.1 - 7.5. Remove large rocks prior to permanent placement. Sun: Prefers filtered sunlight, but will tolerate full or partial sun conditions well. Water: Keep moist for the first season, not very water needy after establishment; 1 - 2 growing season. More Information: All birches are uncommon for their bark traits. Shredding, peeling bark, and horizontal lines on multicolored trunks are the trademark of true birches. Each is distinct in its own display of exfoliating bark. Some have strips, some sheets, and some almost none at all, but provide a deeply ingrained colored bark with striations of color running perpendicular to the height of the tree.
