Birch trees are recognizable by their bark, which peels off in strips in all birches except the gray birch. Bark of the birch can be white, grey, yellow, silver or black in color. Young trees have smooth bark. Deep ridges on the bark are characteristic for the older plants.
Birch trees thrive in moist soil and full sunlight. Dry conditions are unfavourable for the tree due to its shallow root system.
The usual lifespan of the birch is 40-50 years. In favourable conditions, this tree can live for as long as 200 years.
The average height of a birch tree is around 12 meters (40 feet tall), but the paper and yellow birch can grow up to 24 meters (80 feet) tall.
