                    About

                    As its name suggests, the River Birch naturally grows along river banks. But as a landscape tree, it can be planted almost anywhere in the U.S. The River Birch has become a favorite and popular landscape tree because of its distinctive peeling, cinnamon-colored bark, and graceful crown. This beautiful species displays wondrous spreading limbs and year-round color standing out in the Fall and Winter. The species is also valued for its relatively rapid growth, tolerance of wetness and drought, and resistance to birch borer and deer. In 2002, one of its cultivars was even named the Urban Tree of the Year by the Society of Municipal Arborists.

                    Wildlife

                    Its small but plentiful seeds are appreciated by a wide range of songbirds. The catkins of the River Birch are used by redpolls and pine siskins. The foliage is eaten by deer and other browsers.

                    Wonderful service

                    I lost my Husky of 18 years, and this was a great way to memorialize her. I received the urn and the tree within a week, and the quality of both was outstanding. I highly recommend this company and the services they offer.

                    Quality service

                    I ordered the urn and willow for my dog’s cremains. The service was easy to use, with clear instructions and useful information. The living urn couldn’t be simpler to use (I was concerned it might be unduly complex). The urn arrived beautifully packaged (the casing and materials are quality). I had to change the tree’s delivery date; that took a couple of phone calls to the nursery, but the tree arrived in good condition. It’s hard to say how well it will grow as it’s deciduous and newly planted, but it seems healthy. Overall, I’m very happy with both the urn and the service. I would strong recommend this company.

                    Azalea for my cat

                    The instructions were so helpful. I appreciated the direction and ease of use. The plant came and was in wonderful condition. The helpful zone configurator made it very easy to be sure I picked a plant that would do well in my area.

                    Lovely Tribute

                    The kit arrived quickly with all of the components needed to create a lovely tribute to my late dog. No issues putting everything together, except the biodegradable urn is really big for animal ashes and requires a huge hole to plant. I understand that an urn of this size is important for the volume of human ashes, but maybe make a smaller one for pets that’s easier to plant? Just a thought for a future product. Anyway, a very nice kit overall.

                    Awesome

                    Really nice urn - my dog passed last month and have been looking for something special for her. Love the personalization and that it's affordable - thanks!
