Yellow Birch - BETULA alleghaniensis

Native. Zone 3-7. Full Sun-P.Shade. Perennial

Considered the most important species of birch for lumber and is extensively used for flooring, furniture, doors, veneer, cabinetry, gun stocks and toothpicks. Yellow birch can be tapped for syrup similarly to sugar maple, and although the sap has less sugar content, it flows in greater quantity than sugar maple. When the sap is boiled down, the wintergreen evaporates and leaves a syrup not unlike maple syrup. The sap can also be used as is in birch syrup or may be flavored. Tea can also be made from the twigs and inner bark.
