Description

A Missouri native. This low maintenance tree is vigorous and fast-growing. Well known for its incredible Salmon-pink to reddish brown peeling bark that exfoliates to reveal a lighter inner bark. Perfect for wet, acidic soils and is perhaps the most adaptable and heat tolerant of the birches. The Heritage® can be trained as either a single trunk or multi-trunked tree. Resistant to birch borers and leaf spot disease.

The estimated delivery is almost 2 months before the last frost date and we may have episodes of snow. Is it safe to plant the Heritage River Birch when it arrives?
Nancy R on Mar 25, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you would like us to ship your order at a different time, please contact our Customer Support Team at 800.325.4180. We would be glad to help you arrange what suits you and your growing zone best.
