River Birch Tree
- Scientific Name: Betula nigra
- Description: The trunk of this tree often is short, branching into several large limbs that grow upward. The bark of younger trees is pinkish to reddish brown. When older it is shaggy and silver-gray to black. The ornamental River Birch favors moist soils and typically is found growing on stream banks and in swampy lowlands. It is more common here in the South, where it is the only birch tree that is found at low altitudes. You can buy River Birch Trees at Fannin Tree Farm in Frisco, TX.
