This birch tree thrives on cool, moist soils Their shallow root system is sensitive to periods of drought or heating of the soil, thus they may grow poorly in hot, dry soils. Try and locate birch trees in a location where the soil will be shaded, cool and moist. The birch tree requires full to partial sun on their leaves to grow well. This birch is a riverbank tree in its natural environment and prefers a well-drained soil where the root system has access to plenty of water and the crown of the tree has access to lots of sunlight.

The best time to feed the White Birch is late fall to early spring. Do not feed between mid-August and mid-September as this may force new growth that may not have time to harden off before winter. An acidified evergreen fertilizer, 30-10-10, works well as the birch prefers a slightly acidic soil.
