Balsam Poplar
European White Birch

Balsam Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing deciduous tree.

Native to Canada east of the Rockies, this large, upright's seedlings are grown from cuttings.

Sometimes they are a male clone, so they don't produce fluff. Other times, the collection was from both male and female trees and there is some fluff produced.

European White Birch is a mid-sized shade tree native to Eurasia. This deciduous tree has a pyramidal form when young, maturing into a rounded crown with arched branches and drooping branchlets.

The trunk is slender, with white bark featuring black diamond-shaped lenticels. European White Birch is an ideal landscape tree for parks and gardens.

Similar to the Cutleaf Weeping Birch, this species is a popular ornamental.
