This vigorous grower has exfoliating bark that is lighter than river birch, ranging from tan to creamy white to parchment white. While it tolerates wet, poorly drained soils, it does well in upland soils, and is resistant to bronze birch borer. Clumps have three or more stems. Voted 2002 Urban Tree of the Year by the Society of Municipal Arborists.
