Landscape architects for commercial projects are using them to create excellent natural groupings.For a natural grouping, we recommend that you include both single stem and multiple trunk trees. Plant them 20 - 40 feet apart and vary the spacing between trees.Try them on a raised berm to heighten the impact. As a bonus, they grow quickly to provide shade and a welcome privacy screen.This is the tree to spend money on with exterior lighting. Shoot the light upward, along the length of the trunk and up into the canopy. You'll highlight the look of the beautiful bark to bring your yard to life, even at night.Don't forget to include some in your shelterbelts in front of larger evergreen trees. The vibrant bark and fall color will really pop against a backdrop of evergreen trees.Heritage Birch looks amazing along the edge of a pond or water feature. The reflection is so beautiful, it soothes the soul.Because this tree can tolerate moist soils, it should be strongly considered to include in Rain Gardens in low areas of your yard. They are designed to trap water runoff from roofs and streets.Tree roots filter the potentially polluted water before it drains directly into the storm sewer and on to local rivers and streams. Use Heritage Birch in the Mesic-or middle-Zone of the Rain Garden planting.Municipalities are even using them as street trees. They'll tolerate extremely tough conditions without a lot of care, fuss or muss. Try them yourself!#ProPlantTips for CareHeritage Birch is highly adaptable and is easy to grow and maintain. It grows in wet soils and clay soil. Plant in full sun or partial shade. It will need at least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day.Although widely adaptable, Heritage Birch trees prefer a slightly acidic soil. Test your soil pH and add Sulphur before planting if the pH is higher than 6.0.If your soil is high pH alkaline, add a few handfuls of peat moss to the planting soil backfill when planting. Feed it with an acid loving plant fertilizer in early spring.Establish your young trees by providing a regular amount of water, especially in hot, dry areas. Check the soil moisture by sticking your finger into the soil near the tree up to the second knuckle. Is the soil still moist? Skip watering that day. Is it getting dry? Give the entire root system a long drink.Once established after the first few seasons, Heritage tolerates some drought. Whenever it gets extremely dry, protect your investment by dropping the hose underneath, Keep your tree stress free with a good soaking.Provide a thick layer of pine mulch over the root system to help maintain moist soil. Leave at least 6 inches free and clear around the trunks.Create a temporary fence around your new tree if you live in deer country, or where rabbits are present. You know that hungry animals will sample anything.Use repellent spray the first day you plant and reapply according to the directions. That's cheap insurance for your landscape investment. Once the trees reach a good size, deer and rabbits tend to leave them alone.Heritage Birch tree has a very fast growth rate, and you'll want to keep the canopy balanced with strategic pruning. The main goal is to increase sunlight and air circulation into the interior of the canopy.It's best to wait until after the spring sap rises. Wait to prune after the tree leaves out in spring to avoid dripping sap.For the best results, create a mulched planting bed for your new tree.
