Snow Queen Birch Tree 

In our opinion, a much more attractive tree than Silver Birch. This is a medium-sized tree with spectacular,white, peeling bark, which contrasts well with the cinnamon-orange of its branches. It has oval, dark green leaves that turn beautiful shades of golden yellow in the autumn.

This tree is supplied at a height of 1.2-2.2m in a 10-20L container for year round planting and has a better survival rate compared to the bare root option as the roots are not disturbed. Expect a final height of 10-15m although manual pruning and/or keeping in a container will keep this height down. Although you can prune the shape down, the Snow Queen is best left alone as they perform better without any regular or structured pruning. 

The pictures shown are NOT what you will receive when the courier turns up at your house. These represent what they will most likely look like in years to come. For us to send you Snow Queen trees as shown in the picture we would need to hire very heavy duty agricultural equipment to dig them up, a crane to lift them and several men and a very large truck to transport them to your house. Unfortunately all of that, despite your best optimism, will not fit into the cost we are selling our Betula jacquemontii 'Snow Queen'. Yes, we had someone expect a mature Betula jacquemontii 'Snow Queen' to be delivered despite our product description.

Snow Queen Sizing Options Explained

5-7 Litre: 150-200cm . Likely to come as a feathered specimen which means the branches start quite low to the ground. Usually 1-2 years old but could be older.  
12 Litre 1/2 Standard: This means that our Snow Queen tree has been pruned to give it a pleasing ornamental shape which in visual terms means a bit like a lollipop shape. There will be roughly a third of the tree that is free of branches (this will be the bottom third for those unsure!) Usually 2-3 years old and will be 150-200cm tall. 
12L 200-250cm: This means that our Snow Queen tree has been pruned to give it a pleasing ornamental shape which in visual terms means a bit like a lollipop shape. There will be roughly a third of the tree that is free of branches (this will be the bottom third for those unsure!) Usually 2-3 years old and will be 200-250cm+ tall. 
12 Litre Multi Stem : This will be a 2-3 year old Snow Queen multi-stem tree. A desirable look by many gardening enthusiasts whereby the branches start very low to the ground which gives you a sort of vase or bush shape. This will be in the 120-180cm size range.
20 Litre : Similar to the 12 litre 1/2 standard but is 4-5 years old, already has white bark showing and comes in the 180-260cm range. 

The pictures shown are for general guidance and a small amount of variation can occur due to conditions on the nursery.  

For best results plant in an acid biased soil (emptying old car batteries on your lawn will not help!) The Snow Queen is drought tolerant so for those forgetful people out there or those that don't own a hose pipe and don't understand the operating instructions to a watering can, then this tree is definitely for you. On the flip side, if you are a very nurturing gardener and water your garden too much, the Snow Queen will also tolerate that although standing water maybe an issue. 

The Snow Queen is also known as Jacquemontii Dorenbos.

The standard option will have approximately 50-100 cm of clear trunk whereas the multi stem option starts at ground level. A visually stunning effect for major wow factor in any garden or avenue. If the multi-stem option is not listed above as a separate choice then we are sold out and only have the standard Snow Queen available.

We achieve the Snow Queen multi-stem look by one of two ways. One is an actual multi-stem which is a single tree that has multiple branches starting out at below ground level (very difficult to achieve) and the other is to plant 3 very young Snow Queen trees close together giving the EXACT SAME look. At a distance most normal people view trees, the difference would be very difficult to tell apart. So if you are a customer that prefers to view trees from a metre or less and absolutely must have the truest form of a multi-stem, please contact us before purchase to make sure we have the most difficult to grow variation of a Snow Queen Multi-Stem in stock. 

Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Snow Queen Birch Tree

The Snow Queen tree has just been delivered and is lovely thank you. I am most impressed as we have thick snow here and didn’t expect it to come today. Thank you for all your help. Regards, Vivien Knapman 0218 

Hi Alan, The Snow Queen trees have now arrived, thanks. They were ordered for my dad. He has asked me to let you know that he is very pleased with them and also the service you gave. Many thanks Simon 0416

Hi Alan, The trees (Betula jacquemontii 'Snow Queen')  ordered were for my better half’s Auntie who had asked me to trawl the internet to find this particular variety.  Having visited a few different sites I felt most comfortable to order with your company.  The cost of the trees seemed well priced and free delivery sealed the deal! The trees were delivered when promised and placed where asked, as there was nobody in at the time.  The trees looked very healthy and were well packaged. The trees are now planted……….which I got commandeered to help with and so far, are doing just fine. I have kept your website as a short cut on my desktop as if we require any further items of this nature, would not hesitate in ordering from you again. Kind Regards, Mark 1214

My two (Betula Snow Queen) trees arrived this morning very well packaged & protected. I am very impressed & will definitely order more from yourselves soon. WOW so healthy & green too!Thank you! Sue Fry. 0514

Thank you for the beautiful (Snow Queen) tree - received today - really admire how it was packaged many thanks Dianne Wheeler 1012

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Water Logged Conditions
Willow, Alder, Birch and Poplar may help lower the water level so long as you do not have permanent standing water e.g. your local diving and sailing club meets on your lawn.

Grafting
All our Betula are grafted onto Betula Alba Pendula rootstock.
