Yellow Birch
Dappled Willow

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.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Dappled Willow is a small, cold hardy shrub with unusual beauty. Its leaves are pink in spring, maturing into variegated shades of pink, white and green. After losing their leaves in autumn, the stems maintain a rich red color throughout the winter. For a splash of color, try Dappled Willow on its own or as a hedge.
