Also known as paperbark birch, this tree is ubiquitous across Canada. It can grow in very cold climates and is often found in the boreal forests. Its bright white bark which peels off in sheets is its most striking characteristic. White birch is a fast-growing, short lived tree in warmer climates, and prefers colder climates. The leaves are dark green on the surface and are doubly serrated. Fruits mature in the fall, in the form of catkins that contain thousands of tiny seeds.
Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours, then cold-stratify for 3 months.
