The northernmost native range of River Birch is in New York State and Southern New England.
River birch preferes alluvial soils and moist areas over dry sites and is naturally found along streambanks. Associated plants include Sycamore, Maples, Yellow Poplar and Tupelo.
The tree produces catkins and winged seeds. Average mature size ranges between 50 and 100 ft depending on planting site and other present vegetation. River birch requires full sun and does well along streams, ponds and lakes. However, it will not do great in areas that frequently flood.
