The deep roots of Silver Birch make it a useful soil improver for other plants. They bring otherwise inaccessible nutrients into the tree and when it sheds it’s leaves these nutrients are recycled on to the soil surface.

Call Me Birch

My name is Betula Pendula,
You may call me Birch for ease,
My name starts with the letter B,
I’m a pioneer amongst the trees. 84 more words
