“The crown is fairly upright and oval in youth, Betula Costata increasingly broadens with age to a rounded or columnar shape. Bright green leaves with conspicuous veins; golden autumn tones. A shallow rooting tree. It is a very good for parks and woodlands, but not suitable for areas where soil becomes compacted. It will grow well on most other soils and is available as both a single stemmed tree and as a multi-stem.”
