Upon Receipt Of Your Plants

Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.


River Birch Live Stakes are both an excellent shade tree and resistant to flooding, making it a superb choice for landscaping near water, as it holds back riverbeds and helps to control erosion

But this versatile tree is also resistant to drought, and unlike the White Birch variety, the River Birch Tree withstands heat well, thriving in hot and humid locations—but also withstands icy conditions. The cinnamon-colored bark is highly ornamental, as it sheds continually. The accumulated bark near the bottom of the tree deters weeds and other plants from growing near it. This oval-shaped tree features glossy green leaves with a silvery white underside, gold leaves in the fall, green or brown flowers in spring, and 1-3 inch fruit. Songbirds appreciate the small, plentiful seeds, while deer browse on the leaves. Fallen leaves disintegrate easily, making less raking necessary.
