Betula utilis jacquemontii Trinity College

  • Height 10 years: 3m-5m / 10ft-16ft
  • Growth habit: Upright
  • Bark: White

Trinity College features the bright white bark associated with Himalayan birch trees (Betula utilis), but it is smaller and more upright than most others of this species - likely to reach 6m after 10 years - making it a good choice for smaller gardens.

The stem turns white from a young age, and the tree grows with an upright graceful form.

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).
