Speckled Alder trees are a part of the Birch family. They grow 1-2’ per year, reaching a maximum height of 15-25’. They grow in a variety of soil types, but prefers wet soils. Songbirds, including redpolls, goldfinches, woodcock, and grouse eat the seeds, buds, and catkins, and the tree provides shelter for white-tailed deer, rabbits, and others. Beavers build dams and lodges with speckled alder. These trees are often planted in residential parks and under power lines.
