Silver birch (Betula pendula) is the most striking medium -sized deciduous tree native to the UK and Europe. Silver birch can be planted to improve soil quality for other plants and trees near it to grow. It has a unique quality in that its roots will bring inaccessible nutrients to the tree and then recycled when the leaves are shed.
Betula pendula can reach heights of up to 30m, and will form a canopy with drooping yet graceful branches. Its striking white bark will shed layers like tissue, as the tree matures leaving darker bark shaped like diamonds.
Silver birch trees have both male and female catkins which are found on the tree, and from April to May these catkins are showy long, yellow and brown in colour. They provide a good source of shelter and food for many wildlife species.
Its canopy will provide ideal conditions for plants such as moss, bluebells, wood sorrel to grow, while the fruit, i.e. leaves will provide a good source for over 300 insects and others. Birds such as woodpeckers will nest in the trunks, and siskins, greenfinches and redpolls can munch on its seeds.
