Illustrative example of a pot-grown tree of this variety as supplied.
(Approx. girth: 6/8).
Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
Fill in the details below and we will let you know when Tristis birch is back in stock.
Like most silver birches Tristis is not fussy the planting situation - any sunny or lightly-shaded location will do. It is similarly versatile with respect to soil conditions, except it will not tolerate waterlogging.
