Betula ermanii, or Erman’s Birch, is an elegant, medium-sized, fast-growing, vigorous, deciduous tree with broadly conical habit. It has an attractive creamy or pinkish white peeling bark on the trunk, and papery orange-brown bark on the branches. Its leaves are ovate, heart-shaped, bright green, turning golden yellow in autumn. Small, yellow flowers in long catkins emerge together with the leaves. It has shallow root and dense rooting system. Erman's Birch can grow in various types of soil, as long as they are moist, and well drained. It thrives in full sun or partial shade. It is resistant to frost, but doesn’t tolerate paving, hard surfaces, and coastal winds. Low maintenance plant, requires very little pruning. Betula ermanii is a beautiful, elegant tree, attractive throughout the year, especially in winter. It is perfect as a specimen plant or planted in beds and borders. Great for cottage or urban gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
