About River Birch

From the U.S. Forest Service:

"River birch is a medium-sized, native, deciduous tree. Isolated specimens have reached 100 feet (30.5 m), but the usual height range is 50 to 80 feet (15.2-24.4 m) and 24 to 36 inches (61-91 cm) d.b.h. In Wisconsin, it is usually a small, multi-stemmed tree. The bark is separated into thin papery scales, with coarse scales on lower trunks.

River birch occurs in wide range of climatic conditions. It is primarily a tree of alluvial soils (Entisols). River birch occurs largely on lowlands, floodplains, stream banks, and lake margins. Typical sites are sandbars and new land near streams, inside the natural levee or front. It is occasionally found on scattered upland sites. It is positively associated with clay soils. Soils can be either well- or poorly drained, as long as they are at or near field capacity year-round. River birch often occurs on soils that are too acid for most other hardwoods (pH range 2 to 4), but also occurs on soils of higher pH."


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically around $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.

Seedling Size Chart: Medium

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
