River Birch is moderately fast growing and has a dark brown bark at the base of old trunks, deeply furrowed, becoming lustrous and reddish-brown higher up. Bark peels somewhat less freely than Paper Birch. With a height of 40—60 feet, mature trees have shorter main trunks that divide into several large limbs that form a crown of slender drooping branchlets. It is shade intolerant. Do not plant near power lines.
