New Tree for 2015: Parkland Pillar Birch

These fast-growing birch trees can fit in nearly any yard.

If you love birch but have never had the space for one, now is your chance. Parkland Pillar (Betula platyphylla ‘Jefpark’), a new introduction from Bailey Nurseries, offers attractive white bark and contrasting dark-green foliage that turns golden in the fall. Trees are fast-growing and have a columnar form, making them perfect for use as accents or to create a privacy screen.
