Betula pendula, commonly known as the silver birch is a deciduous tree. It is a popular ornamental tree valued for its striking white bark, delicate foliage, and graceful habit. The bark is one of the most distinctive features, it is smooth and silvery-white, with black fissures and patches, creating a striking visual contrast. The leaves are small, green, and triangular with serrated edges. They turn yellow in the fall before dropping. In spring, silver birch produces drooping clusters of catkins, which release pollen or seeds and are a food source for birds, such as finches and siskins.. Commonly planted as an ornamental tree in parks and gardens due to its attractive appearance and adaptability to various soil types.
