I just looked up a tree I was interested in planting & the image posted there IS NOT the European white birch!! It looks to be Ivy or Kudzu!!! How about fixing the Garden club website, that's 2 problems out of 2 searches & I just subscribed. Is there anything worth researching that will provide me with correct imformation?
