Trees With White Bark
Out of the thousands of trees that exist in North America, there are only a few species with white bark. This makes them an interesting addition to any landscape due to the unique contrast in color against the greens of your grass, plants, and leaves. Some of the the more popular species include sycamore (Platanus occidentalis), white poplar (Populus alba), quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) and ghost gum (Eucalyptus papuana).
What’s unique about regular dark colored bark versus white is that white bark colored trees actually reflect most light. While dark bark absorbs most light. These trees are known to be very tough when it comes to various outdoor climates across many regions because they have less of an issue with heat absorption. Remember that water and proper nutrition of any tree is the key to it’s lifespan. Heat can cause decay, dehydrate trees, and suck out nutrients needed for growth and protection against mother nature.
