It will also colonize thin and poor soils in its natural habitat, hence the ' Russian Rock Birch ' and is also called ‘Gold Birch’ because of its yellow-white and pink-white peeling off bark in thin strips and the splendid yellow autumnal color . Position: Full sun or partial shade. Height: In good conditions it will grow to 65 feet - 20m Spread: 35 feet - 10 m Medicinal use : Vulnerary. The bark is used to bandage wounds. Other uses : The tree colonizes poor soils and cleared woodlands in the wild. This makes it suitable for use as a pioneer species for re-establishing woodlands. It is a quite short-lived species, but grows fairly quickly and creates suitable conditions for more permanent trees to become established. Because its seedlings do not grow well in shady conditions, the birch is eventually out-competed by the other woodland trees.
