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!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

The Dura Heat® River Birch, scientifically known as Betula nigra 'BNMTF', is a popular cultivar of the native River Birch tree. It is highly regarded for its heat tolerance and resistance to bronze birch borer, making it a reliable choice for landscapes in warmer climates.

The Dura Heat® River Birch typically grows to a height of 30 to 40 feet with a spread of 25 to 35 feet. It has a multi-stemmed, upright habit and attractive peeling bark that ranges in color from creamy white to cinnamon brown. The leaves are diamond-shaped and green, turning yellow in the fall.

This cultivar is adaptable to a variety of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade for optimal growth. Regular watering is important, especially during dry periods, to help establish and maintain healthy growth.
