Betula utilis, commonly known as the Himalayan birch, is a beautiful multistem tree that is native to the Himalayas, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. It is a deciduous tree that can grow up to 20-25 meters tall and has a distinctive white bark that peels off in thin, paper-like layers, revealing a fresh orange-brown bark underneath.

The leaves of the Betula utilis are small and triangular, with serrated edges, and they are a bright green color in the spring and summer, turning yellow in the fall before they drop. In the winter, the tree’s striking white bark provides a dramatic contrast against the darker landscape.

The Betula utilis is an excellent choice for adding texture, contrast, and interest to any landscape design. It thrives in moist, well-drained soil and prefers full sun or partial shade. It is also relatively low-maintenance and disease-resistant, making it a great choice for homeowners and landscapers alike.

In addition to its beauty, the Betula utilis also has some practical uses. The bark can be used for a variety of purposes, including papermaking and as a natural insect repellent. The tree’s wood is also highly valued for making furniture and other wooden objects.

Overall, the Betula utilis is an elegant and versatile tree that can add a touch of class to any outdoor space. Its unique white bark, striking fall foliage, and ease of care make it an excellent choice for homeowners and landscapers alike.

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).
