GLEBE TREES AND SHRUBS
White birch (Betula papyrifera)
Photo taken May 19, 2008 at 246 First Avenue.
The bark was not peeling, so I am not 100% sure it is white birch.
European birch is white, but does not peel as readily. It also has black triangles
below many branches. The leaf of European birch is shaped differently - more delicately.
Trembling aspen bark is greenish-white, does not peel
at all, and looks like the tree has been bandaged.
