Silver Birch (Betula pendula) are by far Melbourne’s most popular tree. They are easy to grow and if properly looked after they will grow quickly for the first few years, with growth of up to 6ft per year. Silver Birch are very attractive in all seasons with soft green lacy foliage creating dappled shade in the summer. In the autumn the foliage turns gold and in winter you have a brilliant white trunk with red hanging branches.
