Look at them catkins.
Found it just along that treeline on the right.
Here's a bonus willow.
And some cuttings.
Idk how many people get to see these birch so I figured I'd share. This thing was difficult to get a good picture of the whole tree since it was surrounded by willows, vetch and grass. Honestly, I rarely see glandulosa. I see a lot more betula Nana but those only grow about 3 feet max and not up to 9-10 feet like glandulosa. It's a cool species of dwarf birch with tiny leaves and unusual brown bark so I've been looking for some to collect. Unfortunately, this one is uncollectable but I did get 30 cuttings. I've only done 2 cuttings and 2 air layers of birch and they all took so I'm fairly optimistic that I'll get at least a few to root.
