River Birch 'Little King'

You see river birch specimens all over town. Most often it is used as a tree for foundation purposes. But if you have ever seen one that's about 30 years old, you'll never plant one close to the house again. There is an alternative to the big whopping river varieties. 'Little King' measures out to a mature size of 10-15' high by 10 to 15' wide. I think these dimensions make 'Little King' a more flexible option when siting a river birch anywhere need a house. This is just another reason why Skinner Garden Store in Topeka has the best selection of trees and shrubs in the area.
