Weeping White Paper Birch

This is a nifty tree.
I think it's a weeping white paper birch.

Check out that tree bark.

The leaves are just starting to turn.

Tree hugger, here.

Thakyou! I have owned a tree exactly like this since I moved into my house in 1993. When the SD DOT wanted to remove it as part of a rode widening project some years ago I managed to talk them out of it.

A day or two ago, a truck driver from Sioux Falls stopped to talk to me about a sale I was running and mentioned to me that this was a "paper white weeping birch" tree. He said my tree was very healthy and that there are none in Sioux Falls because they are susceptible to particular parasite.

I am putting this home on the market now and at least now I will be able to tell people what this tree is. My curiosity is satisfied.
