Why plant Parkland Pillar Birch?

An exemplary exclamation point for northern landscapes! Parkland Pillar Birch is a svelte, columnar tree with flashy white bark and a penchant for cold winters. Hardy to 40 below zero, it survives in the most frigid regions. This is a fast-growing tree, quickly reaching lofty heights, but remaining super-skinny throughout its life. Parkland Pillar gives you the look of a Lombardy Poplar, but it is more refined and longer-lived. Use it as a striking specimen, plant a pair to frame a distant view, or employ a whole row of trees as a windbreak or property line divider. Exquisite!

Parkland Pillar is not only tolerant of extreme cold, but it is also more resistant to heat, drought, and wind than other Birch Trees. It was derived from Dakota Pinnacle Birch, a selection bred at North Dakota State University in the 1980s as part of a program to develop more durable Birches. Dakota Pinnacle has a handsome elliptical outline and makes a fine landscape tree. Parkland Pillar was discovered as a random mutation on one branch of a Dakota Pinnacle Tree growing in a nursery in Alberta, Canada. It maintains a narrower outline than the original without any pruning. In fall, Parkland Pillar Birch’s deep green leaves are transformed. They turn a warm golden-yellow, and the canopy glows like a candle flame in the cool autumn air. The leaves hold quite late, extending the show.

How to use Parkland Pillar Birch in the landscape?

This upright, narrow tree creates an attractive privacy screen or hedge when planted in a row. Planted singly, it will stand out in your landscape. Use to line your driveway or your property line.

How To Plant Parkland Pillar Birch

This Asian White Birch prefers full sun and well drained soil. Awesome fall color. Parkland Pillar Birch is easy to grow and you can plant them in practically any sunny location, just make sure the soil is not extremely dry. Parkland will brighten your cool, autumn days.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.

How To Prune

Not much pruning work required due to its tight growth habit. Prune as needed in early summer.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees and shrubs, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks to be delivered. - Sizes Large (AA) and smaller (Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
