Dakota Pinnacle Birch
Yellow Birch

Dakota Pinnacle Birch is a hardy deciduous tree with a columnar to narrowly pyramidal form. It makes a beautiful accent tree, and Dakota Pinnacle Birch is insect resistant and drought tolerant.

Dakota Pinnacle Birch features smooth white bark and dark, green foliage that turns yellow in the fall.

Yellow Birch is a large and valuable hardwood species in northeastern North America. The bark on its limbs and young trunks is silvery-yellowish in colour, hence the name. This tree prefers to grow in cool regions with damp or saturated soil.

Yellow Birch can be tapped for syrup, like Sugar Maple. Although the sap has less sugar content, it flows in greater quantity than maple trees.
