Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!

The Yellow Birch, scientifically known as Betula alleghaniensis, is a beautiful deciduous tree native to eastern North America. It is known for its distinctive yellowish bark, which peels in thin, papery layers, and its graceful form. Here are some key features and care tips for the Yellow Birch:

  1. Appearance: It has a pyramidal or oval-shaped crown and attractive, glossy green leaves that turn a vibrant yellow in the fall. The bark starts off reddish-brown when young and gradually develops into a yellowish color with age, peeling in thin, horizontal strips.

  2. Watering: The Yellow Birch prefers consistently moist soil, especially during dry periods. Regular watering is important, particularly during the tree's establishment period. Mulching around the base of the tree can help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.
