River Birch, scientifically known as Betula, are fast-growing shade trees native to North America, which makes them very easy to grow. As the name suggests, they like a consistently moist soil so are great for planting in those damp to wet areas in the landscape, though have good drought tolerance when established. Perhaps what makes this tree so popular is the ornamental peeling bark in shades of ivory, tan, and cinnamon.

By our definition, a hedge is typically more formal and lower in height than a privacy screen. A hedge is made of closely planted shrubs or other plants which, as they grow and are trimmed and shaped or left to grow natural, form a straight or curved solid wall or fence of foliage from 1 to 10 feet in height.
By our definition, a privacy screen is typically less formal and taller in height than a hedge. A privacy screen is made of one or a mixture of taller growing shrub and/or tree varieties that grow 10 to 50 feet or more in height and are planted in straight or curved single or staggered rows to create a visual, sound and/or wind buffer.
