Dakota Pinnacle Birch
Discovery Japanese Elm

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.

Discovery Japanese Elm is great for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to maintain their trees as it doesn't drop many seeds. It has beautiful dark green foliage and is resistant to Dutch Elm Disease. This elm is similar in shape to the American Elm but is roughly 30% smaller. Instead of having an irregular and broad-shaped crown as other Japanese Elms do, the Discovery Japenses Elm has symmetrical branching, an upright growth form, and develops a classic vase-like crown.
