How to Identify the Leaves:
Yellow birches are a slow growing medium sized tree and can grow up to 25 meters tall. Its leaves are deep yellowish-green oval leaves (8 to 11 centimetres long). The birch's bark begins thin, shiny, reddish-brown; as the tree ages it becomes dull yellow and darkens to bronze when mature.
