I was searching, but was unsure about the what climate zone/hardiness zone you can grow these trees in?

Zones 2-6, although I have seen them in northern VA (zone 7). They did not look so good. The river birches do better there (Dura-heat and Heritage varieties).

I live in zone 7 and we have alot of paper birches here in people's yards. I haven't seen many that are more then about 20 years old. They seem to do just fine here. We have freezing winters and hot dry summers.

I believe we've moved into zone 8, and in talking to nursery people they tell me that paper birches don't do well here (not that they *can't* grow), so I think I'll have to settle for river birches. I do like those almost as well.

I have a river birch. I actually think it looks more natural in my area (Tennessee) than a paper birch.

I'm not sure what zone we live in. (We're @ 30 min. south of Lake Erie in north central Ohio.) We have a River Birch planted in a wet part of our yard & it has done quite well.

You'd probably be in Zone 5B.

Default Good to know.

Thanks alleycat. I should remember that. I had no idea there is such a designation as 5b or 5a. I'm just not that well informed re: the zones. Looks like I need to do some snooping around.

A paper birch would do well in your zone, especially in areas that have a northern exposure.
