Small shrubs that grow on the forest floor include blaeberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) and cowberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea). It is sometimes used as a pioneer and nurse tree elsewhere. [20] This disease also affects B. pubescens and in 2000 was reported at many of the sites planted with birch in Scotland during the 1990s. A graceful, upright tree that has brown bark when young becoming white with maturity. "Silver Birch" redirects here. From shop SEEDMALL. [1] The synonym Betula oycowiensis (as B. oycoviensis) was previously listed on the Red List as vulnerable,[22] though it is now considered a synonym of B. pendula subsp. 'dimension7': '173628', Add to Wishlist; Share This. Young branches have whitish resin warts and the twigs are slender, hairless, and often pendulous. Birds found in birch woodland include the chaffinch, tree pipit, willow warbler, nightingale, robin, woodcock, redpoll, and green woodpecker. The flowers are catkins and the light, winged seeds get widely scattered by the wind. It is also distinguished cytologically, silver birch being diploid (with two sets of chromosomes), whereas downy birch is tetraploid (four sets of chromosomes). They are sticky with resin at first, but this dries as they age, leaving small, white scales. In the spring, large quantities of sap rise up the trunk and this can be tapped. It will look beautiful very quickly and bring a real presence you will love. The outer bark can be peeled off in the late spring or early summer and used to create a variety of crafts. The shoots are grey-brown with fine downy. The dead twigs are also useful as kindling for outdoor fires. European birch trees do thrive where other trees will not, and do well as far north as Lapland. Golden brown on twigs and young branches, the bark matures to silvery white with black clefts.
