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.

The Empress Tree is a fast growing, ornamental shade tree. It has purple, fragrant flowers that are quite attractive. The flowers emerge before the leaves in early spring. The leaves of this tree can grow very large, up to 30 cm long.

As one of the fastest growing trees in the world, this tree has been given considerable attention for carbon sequestration projects. It drops many seeds which can make it invasive in warmer climates. Please do some research and plant the right tree in the right place.

The Empress tree’s genus name comes from Princess Paulowna, daughter of Tsar Paul I of Russia.
