Betula pendula 'Prostrate' is a stunning prostrate European White Birch that will add beauty to any landscape. This medium-sized deciduous tree reaches between 15-30 tall and has a slender trunk usually under 15 inch diameter. This tree is perfect for aesthetic purposes or ecosystem services. The bark is white with black diamond-shaped marks or larger patches, particularly at the base. The bark is known to be waterproof, durable, tough, and resinous, and is used for drinking vessels, canoe skins, roofing tiles, and many other things. Its resistance to shade and high tolerance to acidic or nutrient poor soils makes it a great pioneer species that readily invades old fields, cleared or burnt-over land, and creates conditions suitable for other woodland trees to become established. Overall, Betula pendula 'Prostrate' is a valuable addition to any landscape, suitable for parks, gardens, and woodland settings.
