Betula Jacquemontii

Himalayan birch, Betula utilis Jacquemontii, is an elegant, medium-sized tree with beautiful white bark. It will grow on most soils apart from chalk and it is well suited to urban sites. Himalayan birch trees can reach a height of about 15-20 metres.

Browse our variety of birch tree or see our full range of ornamental trees.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.

General description of Himalayan birch trees:

The smooth, almost pure white bark is the main attraction of Himalayan birch. Unlike a native birch tree, the bark on the trunk of a Himalayan birch will stay smooth and bright when it is mature. In spring, the tree makes long catkins that provide early season pollen for bees. The autumn leaf colour is a pale, warm yellow that contrasts nicely with the white bark.

History & uses of Betula utilis Jacquemontii

Himalayan birch's native range is centred on Nepal and the first trees were introduced to Britain in the 1880's. It has been extensively cultivated and the trees that you buy from our nursery are grafted, not grown from seed. Birch is a pioneer species: it is fast growing, relatively short-lived, and thrives on sunny, poorly fertile sites.
