The Hardiest Birch + Four Seasons of Interest

Why Dakota Pinnacle Birch Trees?

Want a Birch but worried about diseases and whether it will tolerate your soil and environmental conditions? Look no further than the Dakota Pinnacle Birch, a hardy, tolerant and superior Birch that does it all.

Ornamental value across all seasons? It sounds almost too good to be true, but the Dakota Birch delivers. Plus, it's the hardiest variety around, tolerant of all soil and environmental conditions.

It's the first to show autumn color and the last to lose its leaves. The autumnal display will stick around to impress your neighbors for much longer than a few weeks, and its exfoliating bark welcomes winter in style. It starts out as orange and gray but within a few years, it emerges as a creamy white with darker undertones.

Through pollution, poor soil (even acidic, sandy or loamy), pests, and cold weather, the Dakota Pinnacle stands strong. It thrives in the coldest climates, even through snow, and handles some humidity as well. You won't have to water it either since it subsists on rainfall alone. The Dakota is the epitome of a plant-and-forget landscape staple.

Growing in a pyramidal shape naturally, this tree reaches the perfect height of around 30 feet in 10 years and stays there. Your landscape will be enriched by the vibrant green leaves of spring and summer, transitioning to golden yellow in the fall.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

But the best part? We've planted, grown and nurtured our Heritage Rivers before they ship, so you get the healthiest results possible. You get a more developed root system delivered right to your door - something you won't find at big-box retailers and other nurseries.

If your chain garden center does stock the Dakota, it's most likely sold bare-root...this means you get less than half of the tree's root system. Bare-root trees struggle to survive in most home landscapes, often dying after just a few years.

But your Dakota Pinnacle from Fast Growing Trees is made to last a lifetime, arriving with better-developed branching and healthier, fuller roots in nutrient-rich soil.

The Dakota Pinnacle Birch is a highly desirable tree, so don’t miss out on your chance to add this beauty to your landscape! Order yours today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Dakota Pinnacle Birch in a spot that is protected from the harsh afternoon sun. It prefers well-drained soil and about 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily. Plant in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Cover the ground in a layer of mulch to protect the roots, and water deeply to settle roots.

2. Watering: Watering is only necessary during dry periods, especially while it is establishing.

3. Pruning: No pruning is necessary, but if you do want to prune to size or shape, do not do so when the tree is actively sapping.

Shipping Details

Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
