ALDERS are close relatives of the Birches, with similar flowers, fruits, and seeds. Their bark is marked with horizontal lenticels as in Birches. Alders, however, are mostly shrubs. Of about nine species in this country, only two become good-sized trees: the Red and White Alders of the Pacific Coast. The short-stemmed, alternate leaves vary from species to species, but all are characterized by strong feather veins. Flowers are greenish or yellowish catkins. The fruits are small, woody cones. Alders are fast-growing and prefer moist soil along streams or in swamps.

Height: 20 to 80 ft. Birch family
