The bark of all birches is characteristically marked with long, horizontal or mottled markings. The bark colour is often used to when naming species – eg white birch, silver birch.
Birches are generally small to medium size trees, with a tall trunk and smallish leaves that develop into a light canopy. Trees look fantastic a small garden, adding texture and allowing light to filter through to plants below; planted en mass lining a driveway or in a stand birches look just stunning.
