Betula papyrifera, commonly called paper birch. This tree is noted for its white bark, which exfoliates in papery strips to reveal an orange-brown inner bark. Mature trees develop black markings on the white bark. Single trunk trees grow to 50-70’ tall with an oval rounded crown. Multi-trunked trees grow shorter with a more irregular crown. Ovate, irregularly toothed, dark green leaves. Quality clear yellow fall color. Tiny monoecious flowers appear in early spring in separate catkins on the same tree: yellowish-brown male flowers in drooping catkins and greenish female flowers in smaller, upright catkins. Female flowers are followed by drooping cone-like fruits containing numerous small winged seeds that typically mature in late summer.
