River Birch Tree was once called "The Most Beautiful of Trees."

River Birch, also known as the red birch, black birch, or water birch, these trees are native to the Southeastern United States. Their leaves are diamond-shaped and double-toothed, turning fat in the fall. Early on, these trees have silvery gray bark that changes to pink, reddish-brown, or black when the plant matures. Flowers bloom in the spring and winter, and small brown cones appear in the summer. River birches can grow several trunks.

River Birch Tree is Most Notably an Ornamental Tree

Its durability makes it easy for this tree to create various things, such as flatware, artificial limbs, and toys. River birch trees are also a food source for wildlife, such as birds and rodents (who eat its seeds). Deer eat this tree's twigs and foliage, and hummingbirds drink its sap.

These trees grow in wet environments, hence the name. They're usually found along river and stream banks, meaning they need moist soil. Though they can tolerate drier soil, they do better when moist. Most people with water on their properties surround it with river birch trees.

River Birch Tree was famous among Native Americans for medical uses.

These trees are also suitable for producing shade. River birch trees can be planted as saplings or grown directly from the seed. The trees are known for their papery and peeling bark. These trees only require a little care once planted. Birch trees can also produce a fruit called "samara," producing about 1 million annual seeds. Native Americans used river birch medicinally to treat dysentery and colds.
