The pure white form of the Himalayan Birch. Much sought after for its stark white bark, peeling in parchment-like sheets which areĀ  orange-buff beneath. The ghostly effect is particularly impressive in the winter or when grown against a dark background.

‘Doorenbos’ is a well established cultivar, one of the earliest to be introduced to the UK.

These are strong-growing micro-propagated trees, grown in the UK.

Height: 9-15 metres, moderately spreading crown.
