Betula nigra (River Birch)
Betula nigra, commonly known as River Birch, is a deciduous tree that is native to eastern and central United States. It is known for its beautiful exfoliating bark, which peels off in thin, papery sheets, revealing shades of cream, orange, and brown underneath. The leaves of the River Birch are alternate, simple, and diamond-shaped, with serrated edges. In spring, it produces clusters of small, inconspicuous flowers that are wind-pollinated. The River Birch is a medium-sized tree that can reach a height of 40-70 feet and a width of 40-60 feet.
