The Himalayan Birch tree is revered for its dazzling white bark, an elegantly upright, open-branched tree with bright white bark reaching heights of 12m/40ft. A spectacular tree with oval, mid-green leaves, downy beneath when young that turn a clear yellow in autumn. As with other birches, the old bark peels away revealing the new bark underneath as it grows, giving attractive stripes on the trunk.

Symbolism, Folklore & Old Wives Tales
Known as the Lady of the Wood, Silver Birch is one of the most sacred trees in Celtic Mythology, symbolic of new beginnings and protection. This association derives from ancient times, before the written word when the sacred Silver Birch was associated with the Celtic goddess Brigid.
The birch has strong connections with fertility associated with celebrations of Beltrane, nowadays celebrated as May Day. It is one of the first trees to come into leaf and is a Symbol of Spring, ruled over by Venus and hence is a Symbol of Love.
What more could you ask for?
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.

Beautiful healthy tree arrived today, it’s already been in position about 5 times already. Great service during a different time. Highly recommended…
I have just received my Himalayan Birch Tree and it is absolutely lovely. It arrived packaged really well and it looks very healthy. I am a little worried that the tag on the tree says height and spread is 5m x 3m, as I am hoping for it to grow much higher to provide a little privacy from a neighbouring property. Only time will tell…
You won’t find more reasonable prices than this website – such good value for money
Just to re assure you that the full mature Himalayan Birch will reach 15 metres, not 5 and they are classed as fast growing, so our H & S measurements are a bit misleading. It should reach 5 metres in 2-3 years time and keep growing.
Hope it thrives with you
