Betula jacquemontii 

JACQUEMONT (Whitebarked Himalayan) BIRCH
Betula, jacquemontii (e. utilis var. jacquemontii)

This species hails from the western Himalayas and has proven to be one of the best and most popular birches in the western United States. In the East, though, its use is limited by lack of reliable borer resistance. The chief attribute of this lovely tree is its stunning white bark, said to be the whitest of the birches.
