Description

Betula populifolia (gray or grey birch) is a deciduous tree native to eastern North America. It ranges from southeastern Ontario east to Nova Scotia, and south to Pennsylvania and New Jersey, with disjunct populations in Indiana, Virginia, and North Carolina. It prefers poor, dry upland soils, but is also found in moist mixed woodlands.

Gray birch grows quickly to 20 to 30 feet tall and 15 inch trunk diameter, with an irregular open crown of slender branches. It is most easily confused for the paper birch (Betula papyrifera) by means of its bark. The wood is medium hard and is used for high grade plywood, furniture, drum shells, spools and firewood.
Like other North American birches, gray birch is highly resistant to the Bronze birch borer (Agrilus anxius).
Gray birch has been commonly planted as a landscaping tree in southern Pennsylvania and New Jersey as it tolerates heat and humidity better than paper birch and is more resistant to bronze birch borers and leaf miners.

Type: Hardy tree

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Note: Ornamental use only. May be poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: These seeds are easy to germinate! Place the seeds just below the surface of the soil, water, and keep moist until germination. Germinate at room temperature. Seeds germinate in about 6 weeks average, though could take 4-8 weeks.
