Betula Utilis Jacquemontii or West Himalayan Birch is an elegant, deciduous tree prized for its beautiful white trunk which provides year round interest. West Himalayan Birch produces catkins in spring, has green foliage in summer which turns a luscious gold in the autumn. Particularly striking is its white bark that looks almost magical in winter.
Betula Utilis Jacquemontii is relatively fast growing and can grow as high as 15 metres in either full sun or partial shade. These birch trees can also work well in smaller or even urban gardens as while they grow tall, Betula Utilis Jacquemontii does keep its slim & slender shape.
In the wild, birch trees like plenty of light (as opposed to deep forest), thrive in their own company and tend to look very good in groups. Perhaps this is why we often see birch trees growing in clusters. Betula Utilis Jacquemontii, which are often are often used as wind breaks, are frequently planted in clusters of at least three. Planting distances are flexible – 3 trees planted close together (1 to 2 metres apart) can create a mini-copse effect. Alternative, consider a multi-stemmed West Himalayan Birch Tree option.
