Amur Maackia

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.

Amur Maackia is a robust and pretty tree often used for urban decoration and landscaping. This tree has coppery peeling bark that can sometimes resemble lace. Its upright clusters of small white flowers usually bloom in midsummer. Amur Maackia's Small size makes it a great choice for small yards or limited space.
