  1. Looking to plant a paper white birch in my front yard. I had to take down an old oak tree last fall, really miss having a tree. Also would be interested in any information on where I can purchase a paper white birch, thanks.

    1. Hi, Diane, thank you for the question. That’s still something we’re working through locally–a guide or resource that can connect local retail buyers with trees, especially native ones. We don’t yet have a resource like that in place. In the meantime I’d suggest calling a local garden center and seeing if you can place a special order through them–some of them work with larger growers to source a wider array of plant material upon request.
