                    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.

                    Great day

                    Our family had a great day planting this tree for my daughter. I know it will be beautiful just like her. Thank you!

                    Outstanding Customer Service

                    I made a mistake with my shipping address and I was able to get outstanding support from the folks at Living Urn. They were very responsive to my dilemma and I feel that they went over and above in helping me to resolve the issue. We will be ordering additional living urns because they are so beautifully crafted!

                    excellent

                    The instructions were easy to follow. I read them several times so I wouldn’t make a mistake. My gardener helped me plant the tree. Everything went smoothly from digging the hole to planting the tree. I purchased a small citrus tree because we live in Southern California and my brother enjoyed eating oranges. The memorial was for my brother who passed on 2/3/2022. I will recommend The Living Urn to anyone who asks me. Thank you again for providing this product and I wish you all the best in the coming years.

                    Loved the loving urn!

                    This is the second one I’ve bought. One for my dad and one for my mom. Planted trees next to each other. The trees are doing great.
