The Q&A Archives: Paper Birch

Question: When is best time to plant small paper birch tree. I live in Chicago area. How to buy this tree, and how to know if this tree will have more than one trunk?

Answer: In your cold winter climate, spring is the best time to plant a new tree. This will give it several months of growing weather in which to establish its root system. Paper birch trees are available as single stemmed trees, but also as clumps having 3-5 stems. Look for a clump if you want more than one trunk.

Best wishes with your new tree!
