BETULA JACQUEMONTII HIMALAYAN BIRCH tree in new zealand

BETULA JACQUEMONTII - HIMALAYAN BIRCH

The best of the birches for a warmer climate with vigorous growth. Green ovate leaves turn yellow or brown in autumn and the spectacular white barked trunk and branches offer a stunning effect against a bland or simple back drop. The soft light allowed through the tree when in leaf creates a light shade effect.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
