Silver birch is a striking, medium-sized deciduous tree native throughout the UK and Europe. Overview: mature trees can reach 30m in height, forming a light canopy with elegant, drooping branches. The white bark sheds layers like tissue paper and becomes black and rugged at the base. As the trees mature, the bark develops dark, diamond-shaped fissures.
The British White and White Park cattle were listed in the same herd book from to when a separate herd book was started for each. Originally two types, polled and horned, were admitted into the society, but since only polled have been accepted for registration. The cattle, as their name implies, are white with, normally, black points, nose, muzzle, eyelids, teats and feet. A few cattle have all red points, which is acceptable for registration. There are three associations and cattle of the same color are accepted by all the associations.
