History and Introduction of Dura Heat River Birch:
This tree is commonly found to low lying areas of the eastern United States ranging from Massachusetts to Florida and west to Kansas. French botanist Michaux got it right, originally classifying it as B. rubra. A river birch was sent to Peter Collinson in England from John Bartram in the early 18th century, and it was he who chose the current designation.
