Latin Name : Betula pendula
The Silver Birch, commonly called ‘The Lady of the Woods’ always has a very graceful look about it. Its branch structure and long thin growth therefore accentuates that ‘lacey’ look and the easy movement of the crown, even with a light breeze.
Despite it’s delicate appearance, the Silver Birch is a ‘Pioneer tree’. So called because of its being one of the first trees to colonize a bare earth site.
