Silver Birch (Betula pendula) [2 of 4]

The 'silver' bark is unique, it is the defining feature of this tree and makes identification possible from even quite a way off.

On younger trees the bark is almost unblemished but as it grows larger and older so these warty areas appear and that is why this is sometimes called the Warty Birch.
