     If you love River Birch but are concerned about space, consider Dura Heat, topping out at just about 30 feet with a similar spread.


     It has exfoliating bark revealing an almost white interior, and it is more drought tolerant than the straight species River Birch.


     Birch trees have beautiful canopies and charming yellow fall leaves and are considered Keystone Plants because they feed more than 200 species of butterfly and moth larvae.
