Jaquemonti Birch


This tree, which has the whitest bark of any birch, grows naturally in the western Himalayas. The species name was given to honor Victor Jacquemont, a French naturalist who spent four years traveling and collecting in that area in the 1800s.

The bark is a beautiful cream-white and probably the most striking of all the white barked birches. Develops a rounded crown and golden fall color.
