Silver birch – Betula pendula
Silver birch trees, scientifically known as Betula pendula, are elegant and graceful deciduous trees.
They are highly recognisable for their slender, silver-white bark that peels and reveals a smooth, creamy-colored layer underneath.
Appearance: Silver birch trees have a slender, upright form with branches that sweep upwards. They typically reach a height of 15 to 25 meters when fully mature. The leaves are small, triangular, and have serrated edges. In spring, the leaves emerge as bright green, turning yellow in autumn before falling.
Bark: One of the most distinctive features of silver birch trees is their silvery-white bark.
