PAPER BIRCH IS A NATIVE TREE!
AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR A HEDGEROW
Canoe or Paper Birches (Betula papyrifera) are most easily recognized by their white bark, which was used by Indians to make canoes and cover wigwams. European Birches (Betula pendula) also have white bark, however we do not recommend using the European Birch in the home landscape because of its serious susceptibility to borer insects.
Paper Birches are strictly northern plants.
