Silver Birch Lifespan- How Long Do They Live?

The silver birch has a lifespan which is fairly short compared to other trees such as the mighty oak or redwood. The birch only lives for about 40-80 years at best. It makes up for this short life by growing very rapidly and establishing itself quickly. It can be good for bonsai if you want quick, eye-catching results. BUT in all likelihood, your creation will not be around for your future generations to admire.

    I was focusing on the silver birch in this post.
    What tree were you trying to find out about? Maybe I can help.
