The River Birch tree is a fantastic tree for many reasons! It can be used as a shade tree, or add beautiful year-round interest to your yard! The river birch is easy to grow, even if you don't have a "green thumb". They are beautiful year-round but in winter the unique river birch peeling bark sticks out and it’s pretty to see in the winter when everything else looks bare. As its name suggests, the river birch naturally grows along riverbanks. But as a landscape tree, it can be planted almost anywhere in the U.S. The species is valued for its relatively rapid growth, tolerance to wetness and some drought, unique curling bark, spreading limbs, and relative resistance to birch borer.
The river birch has not yet reached the popularity of many maples and oaks, but it is well on its way. In 2002, one of its cultivars was even named the Urban Tree of the Year by the Society of Municipal Arborists.
To follow your state regulations, we can not ship this plant to Arizona, CA, AK & HI
Deliveries to WA, UT, ID, NV, MT, ND, and SD MUST be shipped Bareroot.
All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.

Plants arrived healthy and well packaged
we have already ordered multiple trees over the years from the weaver family, they are always so helpful and kind in helping with questions about the plants. The trees they have always seem to be very natural and healthy
my river birch trees arrived last week. They are doing very well. One of them is having pretty bad transplant shock but just a week later it is putting out new little leaves so it is going to pull throuhg. Thank you weavers
it took a couple of weeks to get to us, the tree was actually really healthy when we got the river birch. The post office took their sweet time getting this to us. This is not this farms fault, shame on USPS for charging high prices for priority mail and taking 13 days from weaver family farms to our home, that is ridiculous when priority is advertised as 2 day! will have to start using UPS or FEDEX company for everything from now on I guess until the post office gets their s*** togetheer! Good packing by the weavers for it to last that long in the mail, and the roots were still moist and the tree looks great. Its good to give new trees 3specially those that spent so long in the mail, to give them a day or two in the shade to readjust to the brigbht sun again, hope this helps someONe out there.
Our happy river birch tree came today! Good packing. Happy healthy tree
